LEVITTOWN - A pickup truck crashed into a home in Levittown Saturday night.

The crash happened on Wantagh Avenue at Cotton Lane.

Homeowner Jeff McAree says he was inside the house with his wife and children at the time of the crash. The family was watching TV in their living room when the pickup truck came through their kitchen.
