LEWISTOWN - A pickup truck crashed into a residence Wednesday afternoon on U.S. 522 in Derry Township. Mifflin County Regional Police said Stephanie Hegedus, along with two children, ages 5 and 6, were traveling on U.S. 522 North toward McClure. As the car in front of Hegedus was pulling off to the right side of the road, she pulled into the left lane to pass the vehicle and lost control. The cause of the accident was not immediately known. Police said the vehicle veered off the left side of the road and hit a small dirt mound, causing the vehicle to become airborne and land in a bedroom of a residence. The owners of the damaged residence were home during the time of the accident, but were not in the room where the truck crashed. No injuries were reported in the incident.
