LINWOOD — Firefighters on Wednesday removed a man from a truck that struck a house on Shore Road, police said.

At 11:33 a.m., a truck left the road and struck the house in the 1900 block, police Sgt. Austin Martin said. The driver was a 69-year-old white man, said police Capt. John Hamilton.

When fire Capt. Jay Loder arrived, it was determined a door removal would be needed to extricate the man, the Fire Department said.

It took five minutes for the man to be extricated from the vehicle. He was turned over to awaiting emergency medical services personnel, the Fire Department said.

Neither police nor the Fire Department released the name of the man, where he lived or his condition.

TriCare Medical Transportation and AtlantiCare medical personnel assisted at the scene.
