Posted December 26, 2005 11:39 a.m. EST

— A chimney in Johnston County got an unexpected visitor overnight, and it wasn't a man in a red suit.

The Highway Patrol said that a driver lost control of his pickup truck, hit a power pole, went through two fences and right into the chimney of a house on Buffalo road near Selma.

The family inside was not hurt. The driver is now in the hospital. The crash temporarily knocked out power in the area, but it's now back on.
