INDIANAPOLIS - A dump truck lost control after blowing a tire on Interstate 465 on the south side Thursday morning and ended up crashing in a residential neighborhood.
The driver lost control and crashed through a sound barrier wall and then careened down an embankment into a neighborhood.
The truck plowed through a home's fence, across the yard and into another fence.
"He came through that thing like it was nothing but popsicle sticks," said homeowner L.B. McClara.
It hit a tree, and the impact pushed that tree into a house, right where homeowner Laura Miranda had been sitting only minutes earlier.
"Probably like three minutes, four minutes before this happened, I tried to turn on my computer, and for some reason I heard my son scream my name," Miranda told RTV6. "I go upstairs and I say, 'What? What do you want?' And he's sleeping. It was a surprise to me. I heard him call me."
When Miranda returned, she found an unexpected surprise.
"I turned around and there was a tree in my house," she said.
Only the driver of the truck was injured, and he only sustained cuts and bruises.
Officials said it would take a crew of men, a chainsaw and a couple of tow trucks to remove the vehicle.
