SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - Two people were injured after a semi crashed into a home in Sullivan on Sunday evening.

Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom stated there were two people inside the home at the time of the crash. They have been identified as Julie and Robert Pierce. Julie told our crew on the scene that she was inside her home office when it happened. 

Neither inside the home was injured, but the driver of the semi and a passenger were transported for non-life threatening injuries.
