Ontario truck driver crashes into Michigan home, spills potatoes

Police say an Ontario truck driver hauling potatoes crashed into a house in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, injuring the driver and spilling its load.

Michigan State Police say speed is believed to have been a factor in Thursday night's crash in Delta County's Bark River Township.

They say the semi-truck left the highway on a curve and hit several trees, some power lines and the unoccupied house.

After being extricated from the truck the driver was flown to a hospital in Marquette.
