BUTTE, Mont. -

Butte Police are saying a car slammed into a home on the 3300 block of Kossuth Rd. and Continental Drive.

Investigators tell us the driver of a late 90's truck swerved to avoid colliding with another vehicle that turned in front of him.

According to police, slippery conditions contributed to the crash.

NBC Montana spoke to contractors who were already out and repairing the damage Thursday morning.

"Well what pretty much happened is the vehicle came across and it broke out the rim and it hit part of the engineered floor trusts,” said Daniel Wood, Owner of Rocky Mountain Siding and Windows. “So all we have to do is we have to cut up the sheeting, get an engineer to replace all of these engineered floor trusts, and just replace that and then hopefully they still have the same siding in stock and match the siding up perfectly," concluded Wood.
