South Bend street closed after truck nearly hits house


South Bend police were forced to closed Martin Luther King Dr. and Colfax Ave. after a traffic accident Wednesday afternoon.

Police said a car drove into a house.

However, a WSBT photographer on the scene told us the truck came close to the home but didn't actually strike it.

The truck was heading south and was hit by a smaller car that sailed through a traffic light.

The driver of the car told police he/she didn't know what color the light was.

The car tagged the rear of the truck, which spun into a fence and yard, just missing the house.
