Dump truck slams into Petaluma house
A dump truck slammed into a Petaluma house on Thursday afternoon after its brakes apparently failed and the truck rolled down a steep hill, authorities said.
No one was injured in the crash that occurred at 3:18 p.m. at 1 Alexa Court on the westside of Petaluma, according to the Petaluma Fire Department.
The truck was unoccupied and parked on the road in the Query Heights subdivision. No one was home at the time when the truck crashed into the garage area of the three-story home, fire officials said.
Firefighters stabilized the garage, but city inspectors declared it unusable pending repairs. The family who lived there was able to stay in the main portion of the residence.
