FedEx House Crash 1

Citrus County Fire Rescue crews respond Aug. 3 to a FedEx truck that rammed a home in Beverly Hills after it was struck by another vehicle.

A Saturday afternoon hit-and-run crash caused a FedEx truck to ram into the front of a Beverly Hills home.

According to a Citrus County Fire Rescue (CCFR) report, responders were dispatched at around 1:19 p.m. to the house near the intersection of South Barbour Street and Regina Boulevard, where the delivery vehicle had knocked down a portion of the home’s front wall. 

Its driver suffered minor injuries. The home was unoccupied at the time of crash, according to CCFR.

CCFR’s report states that a gold sedan ran a stop sign at a nearby intersection and collided with the FedEx truck, causing it to veer into the house, and the car to travel into the front yard of a neighboring lot.

Citrus County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jodi Sanders said deputies are still investigating the crash.
