Tractor-trailer rolls down hill in Homewood, crashes into empty SUV
HOMEWOOD, Pa. —
A tractor-trailer holding items from the inside of a bank-owned home crashed into an SUV Thursday morning in Homewood.
Officials said crews cleaning the inside of the house on Kendron Drive noticed the tractor-trailer became detached and started rolling down a hill.
"I decided I didn't think it was a good idea to park in front of it because of the hill, so I backed away. I parked my car, and we sat there and watched it take off down the road," witness Bob Cherry said.
Robin Young, the owner of the SUV, said no one was in the SUV at the time.
"There could have been other people in the street, but it was completely empty. I'm glad that it was just my car, and no people were inside," Young said.
Crews said they’ve delayed the project until another trailer gets there.
