Garbage Truck Just Misses Family After Smashing Into Home

An out of control garbage truck has taken out a caravan, boat and car before smashing into a home in Lilyfield, leaving a family trapped inside.

The garbage truck veered off the road at around 6pm last night before crashing into the property on Brenan Street, narrowly missing the family, including two young teenagers, that was inside.

The driver is believed to have escaped injury during the accident but he was taken to hospital to undergo mandatory blood and alcohol testing.

It’s understood that these tests returned a negative result and the truck itself is now being investigated for mechanical issues.

Footage from the scene shows the truck in the front yard of the house with the caravan stuck underneath it’s front tyres.
