Truck Flattens Car And Crashes Into House
A truck carrying 45 tons of sand rolled over the top of a car, completely flattening it, before smashing into a house.
The truck driver was trying to make it up a steep road to a golf course in Bountiful, Utah.
At first he struggled to get the vehicle into a low gear.
Then the brakes failed, sending the vehicle rolling backwards down the hill, taking down power lines and bursting through a wall.
It then crashed into a car on the driveway and smashed into the front of a house, according to Sergeant Andrew Bryson.
He said the residents of the property were eating breakfast in another part of the home when the truck hit and were not injured.
Bill Bymaster, who owns the house, said: "I've never seen anything like it."
He told KUTV: "It's flat. I didn't even feel it, but heard it. Big explosion. I came outside and there was a bunch of smoke."
He added: "The car was sold yesterday - that's the funny part."
