      Pickup hits home, traps resident

      CULVER, Ore. (AP) A pickup slammed into a house and trapped a resident underneath the vehicle in the Central Oregon community of Culver, the Jefferson County sheriff says.

      Sheriff Jim Adkins says 9-1-1 dispatchers got the call Saturday morning, shortly before 2:30, and deputies found a driver suspected of drunken driving and a resident who had to be transported to the hospital by helicopter.

      Adkins told KTVZ that the crash left the house unstable and firefighters used airbags to stabilize it.

      Adkins did not disclose the severity of the victim's injuries. He says the driver had minor injuries.
