PENN HILLS, Pa. —
A utility truck malfunctioned and slammed into a Penn Hills home Monday evening.
Duquesne Light crews are trying to figure out what caused the truck the lose its brakes when the driver was attempting to turn around in a cul-de-sac on Hazel Road.
The home's owner said he was watching television when he felt the entire house move.
Neighbors said a tree slowed the truck's momentum.
"It just slowly started drifting. We all started panicking and dialed 911. There was nothing we could do. My mom ran over to make sure he was OK,” said neighbor Amanda Martinez.
Crews worked on the truck for about an hour before they were able to drive it off of the man's property.
