A garage in south Edmonton has been destroyed after it was hit by a garbage truck.

It happened around 10:15 a.m. on Thursday in the Mill Creek Ravine area, near WC Tubby Bateman Park.

According to police, the crash involved two garbage trucks. The first truck was parked on a hill in an alley with no one inside when it began to roll backwards and crashed into a second garbage truck at the bottom of the hill.

It then rolled backwards into the garage, knocking it off its foundation and damaging two vehicles inside. The gas metre on the garage was also damaged.

No one was injured as a result of the crash, including the homeowner, who was inside when it happened.
