Deputies in Hillsborough County continue their search for the person who drove their truck into a Tampa home Sunday evening. 

The truck plowed through the front of a home on Pepperfield Drive just before 7:00 p.m. A 71-year-old woman suffered critical injuries after being pinned between the truck and her couch. 

Rodolfo Coste lives in the quiet neighborhood, he heard the impact and sprang into action. 

"She was saying 'help, help, help,'" he said. "But it was so dark, I was going crazy looking for the woman." 

Paramedics were able to free the woman, airlifting her to St. Joseph's hospital where she remains in critical condition. 

Detectives said they believe Robert Devon Siders, III, 30, "may have more information about the crash." His sister, Jennifer Martinez, said she spoke to her brother last night. 

"My brother called me right after the accident and told me he ran into someone's house by accident because he lost control of his truck."

Martinez says she told her brother to back and make sure no one was hurt, but he hung up. Tonight, she is thinking about the victim. 

"I just pray every second of every day that she's going to be okay."
