ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - An Altamonte Springs woman whose inspiring story led volunteers to build her a brand new home has had yet another setback.

Skywitness 9 HD flew over the scene on North Brewer Street shortly after a truck belonging to Sadie Holmes crashed into a home on Wednesday.

Walter Wright was away from his home when a bright yellow box truck crashed into his corner bedroom.

The truck, with Holmes' name on the side, was on its way back to her ministry next door when the steering failed.

“As he was making the corner, he couldn't straighten the wheels out to come home, to come to the ministry, so he went into this building,” said Holmes.

For Holmes, whose own damaged house was famously rebuilt by volunteers from ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” only to be threatened by foreclosure, the loss of her only delivery truck brings yet another setback.

“It definitely put a hindrance to us. I have a car, and if I have to use my car and make five trips, work will be done. Ministry goes on,” said Holmes.

Despite his home being damaged, Wright said he hopes someone will donate a new truck to Holmes.

“That one's falling apart,” he said.

Wright's home had no insurance, but Holmes did have auto insurance.
