GREENSBORO, N.C. (WFMY) – A tractor-trailer traveling south on Highway 29 veered off the road and hit a vacant house Monday.
The driver, Gene Drake, was taken to the hospital and no one was inside the home when the crash happened on the 1600 block of O Henry Blvd., police said.
The call came in around 11:45 a.m.
Greensboro police said Drake sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Drake, from Kill Devil Hills, was charged with failure to maintain lane.
Greensboro police said Drake was tired before the crash and his drowsiness was a factor.
