THOMASVILLE, N.C. — A tractor-trailer cab ran through the first floor of a home in Thomasville late Monday night.

The driver of the cab rear-ended an SUV at the intersection of West Sunrise Avenue and Randolph Street and then ran a stop sign, went up an embankment and hit a townhouse on Skiles Heights, according to Sgt. John Elgin with the Thomasville Police Department.

Elgin said two people were inside the townhome at the time. A woman on the first floor was injured and taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. She has since been released. A man on the second floor of the home was uninjured.

Police arrested the driver of the tractor-trailer cab at the scene and say multiple charges are pending against him. They also say alcohol may have played a role in the crash. The passenger in the tractor-trailer got out and left the scene, but police say they later located him.

The home is a total loss, Elgin said. City inspectors will be out to look at the entire building and assess the damage Tuesday morning.
