(COLUMBUS) - A Columbus man was arrested after an early morning crash Friday that resulted in the man's pickup truck running into a house.

Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department Spokesperson Judy Jackson says that at 12:45 a.m. on Friday, officers were called to a crash in the 8000 block of South State Road 58. On arrival, the deputies found a heavily damaged pickup truck and spoke to the driver 22-year-old Jacob Meredith.

According to police the truck went off the roadway, traveled approximately 400-feet in a ditch, broke a utility pole, struck a culvert and then came to rest after striking a house in the 8000 block of South State Road 58.

Authorities say that no one was in the house at the time of the crash.

Luckily, there were no passengers inside of the pick-up truck.

Meredith was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. He was reportedly booked in the Bartholomew County Jail, where he has since been released on $5,000 bond.

The Sheriff's Department is thanking the Southwest Volunteer Fire Department for helping with security and cleanup.
