A driverless cement truck rolled down a hill and slammed into the front of a home in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Los Angeles on Saturday morning, officials said.
The residents escaped injury when the cement truck careened down a grade about 10:30 a.m. and plowed through the garage area of a two-story home in the 3800 block of Glenalbyn Drive, Los Angeles Fire Department Capt. Cody Weireter said.
A woman was in a room directly above the garage that was hit by the truck, but all residents of the home managed to get themselves out unhurt, he said.
The truck’s 50-gallon fuel take was largely empty, the captain said. But a power pole was damaged in the crash, and a guy-wire became entangled with the wreck, slowing down the process of removing the truck from the building.
The cause of the crash was being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.
