A Philadelphia police officer was hurt in a wreck that sent a truck onto a house.

The collision happened around 3:45 a.m. near the intersection of Pulaski and West Coulter streets in East Falls.

The officer from the 39th police district suffered minor injuries. He was hospitalized. The driver of the bread delivery truck was not hurt.
