Garbage Truck Crashes Into Home

Written by Jeremy Scott on June 2, 2014

FOREST GROVE — It was a terrifying experience when a garbage truck crashed into the side of a home on Gales Way Monday morning.

The driver, who works for Waste Management, fell out of the truck while making a turn with the door open.  It caused the vehicle to fly out of control off the road through a yard into the home.

He had minor injuries and investigators are looking into whether he had a medical emergency.


Thankfully, nobody was home.  Maria Lisa can’t stay there until the garage is repaired.  The truck ended up a few feet inside.
