The Ontario Provincial Police have charged the driver of a rented moving truck with careless driving after he crashed the truck into a house in Northern Ontario.
In dashcam video captured by a driver following the Penske rental, the truck is shown veering onto the right-hand shoulder of Highway 64 in Alban, south of Sudbury, before entering the ditch. It then vaults up onto a driveway to land with its rear wheels on the second-storey roof of the house.
The truck also hits the power lines running along the road; watch the space just above the house and you'll see electricity arcing from the wires.
The cammer wisely stops, seeing the potential for many things to happen that, thankfully, don't: the truck remains parked partly on the house and while the truck takes out a power pole and some lines, the neighbouring poles remain upright.
