2 hurt as tractor-trailer slams into house


Two people suffered minor injuries when a tractor-trailer struck by an SUV plowed into a house Thursday night in the Mayfair section of Northeast Philadelphia, police said.

About 7:10 p.m. in the 6300 block of Farnsworth Street, a gray Ford Expedition ran a red light and hit the tractor-trailer, which then veered into the house, police said.

Medics took both drivers to Aria Health-Torresdale Campus. No one was in the house at the time of the accident. - Robert Moran
