Runaway semi-truck crashes into home in Richelieu
An out of control tractor trailer finished its short, but wild ride inside a home in the city of Richelieu, about half an hour from Montreal.
At about 2:00 A.M. Tuesday, the driver of the semi parked his vehicle while he stepped out for a moment to get a cup of coffee. However while enjoying his Cup of Joe he noticed his truck was starting to roll away.
It appears the handbrake either malfunctioned or was not properly set.
As the truck made its way down Richelieu Blvd. it knocked over several street lights before crashing into the side of a home near 2nd St.
Incredibly, no one inside the home was injured.
The driver of the truck was treated for shock.
