A woman has had a narrow escape when a runaway moving truck crashed into the wall of her Northland home. The truck was parked in a nearby neighbours driveway, when it rolled and smashed into the Woman’s living room. Luckily for her, the truck stopped a few meters short of where she was relaxing on her couch.
It is believed that the driver of the furniture delivery truck had only stepped a few meters out in front of the vehicle when he heard the sound of the brakes releasing. While he considered getting back in it, in an attempt to stop the vehicle form rolling away, he was left with no real option but to watch it crash into the neighbours house.
While the front of the Woman’s house has been completely demolished, it is a miracle she didn’t receive any injuries.
