Oops!


This morning on the way out to town for laundry duty, we saw this - a neighbor's truck had slipped down his driveway into his home.  After returning, I got the camera and we went to see it again. He explained to me that he had stopped at the top and got out to get his mail, then got back in, took it out of park and it suddenly slid down! His two very young children were in the back seat. No one was hurt. It was a bit tricky to get everyone out and inside the home.  Sometimes the ice on the roads and driveways can fool ya! He had no idea they were in such danger.

He is explaining to me how it happened.
We had the scanner on last night and heard of icy road conditions throughout the area. Early this morning the cinder truck came by spreading the stuff and we were thankful for that. The tow truck just arrived and pulled the damaged truck out and took it away. I wonder how the house made out. It didn't look like there was serious harm to it when I took the pictures.

  1. Yikes! Despite the problems, snow is easier to deal with than ice. Ice is sneaky.

  2. Oh wow, that's terrible. Thank God the kids weren't hurt, but I'm sure he was scared to death when that truck started moving without him.
