No one was home Thursday evening when a pickup truck crashed into a Tinley Park home. 

Tony Killelea and his daughter Lauren were attending a Central Middle School eighth-grade celebration, when a driver lost control of his Chevy Silverado, dodged a gas meter, trees—even decorative American flags—and struck the home in the 17700 block of 67th Court.

Killelea said he believes the driver lost consciousness. The man was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn. 

The truck hit the southwest corner of the house, damaging the basement. Killelea and his daughter were back in the house later Thursday night, but were unsure for how long.

Your nosy, why do you need the name

Nosy? I'm pretty sure that basic journalism classes teach that you report the who, what, where and whys of a story. We're simply missing half the who's. Poor journalism...or covering for someone! Not nosey, just curious.

TP Karen, the driver's name was not released at the time of this report. And chances are, unless police cited him for something, it might not be. I will check, and if it can be updated, I will do so. Thanks for your feedback.
