The truck’s driver’s door was open but the passenger door was closed. The truck didn’t appear to have sustained major damage.
The pickup truck’s back tires were over the sidewalk on the west side of Central. Its right front tire was on the curb and its left front tire was on Central.A
Several neighbors who had come out to see what had happened reported that they didn’t hear anything about the time of the crash.
Police about 4:45 p.m. said no arrests had been made in connection with the crash.
