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.
