Pickup truck driver crashes into Rockville home

A pickup truck driver crashed his Ford F-Series pickup truck into a home in the Twinbrook Forest neighborhood of Rockville this morning. The crash damaged a house in the 2200 block of McAuliffe Drive around 7:45 AM. Rockville City police are citing "operator error" as the cause of the accident. The 67-year-old driver has been transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Police say the driver will be cited with several traffic offenses. City of Rockville inspectors are now on-site to determine the extent of the structural damage to the home. It's unclear how this happened on a quiet residential street with a 25 MPH speed limit.

  1. The house is directly across the street from the back entrance/exit to the shopping center.

    1. I don't know what actually happened, but it's easier to imagine accidentially accelerating straight out of the shopping center than it is to imagine a sharp 90 degree turn with enough speed to get up that slope and still do that much damage.
