KINGSTON, Okla. -- "There's a truck sticking out of the front of my freakin' house!" country music star Blake Shelton told a national audience Friday morning.

He was in New York City to promote his new album on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" when he told the hosts about the phone call he had just received from Lake Texoma.

"Somebody drove a truck through the front of my lake house!" he explained. 

According to Marshall County Water employee Eric Bridgeman, who was working next door, the accident happened around 9:30 Friday morning.

A man who worked for Allison Landscape and Pool Company came to Shelton's house and was trying to get through the gate. That's when Bridgeman said he heard a loud crash.

The pool company's truck had rolled into the gate and crashed through the front wall of the house with no one behind the wheel.

"He made every effort... I mean, the door was open on the truck and he was running as fast as he could," Bridgeman said. "Honestly, if there was anything I could have done to help him, I would have, and I know my buddy would have."

Shelton noted that he wrote a lot of his new album -- "Texoma Shore" -- at the now-damaged lake house.
