A truck ploughed into a house in the Christchurch suburb of Hoon Hay on Wednesday.

The crash happened at 9.30am on Hoon Hay Road between Sparks Road and Cashmere Road.

Southern Police Communications Centre spokesman Inspector John Doherty says it's not clear at this stage what caused the driver to leave the road.

Nobody was seriously injured but the crash brought down electrical wires and the driver had to wait in their cab until the area could be made safe for rescuers.
