The Associated Press has reported that an out of control tractor trailer smashed into four cars and two houses in western Pennsylvania on Monday afternoon.
The truck flipped on its side and skidded about 50 yards before hitting the homes in Connellsville, Fayette County. Although a family of five was in one of the homes, no one was hurt but the truck driver, who was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital.
State police said that the truck driver faces several citations, including driving too fast for conditions.
We were thankful to hear that no one in the homes hit by this runaway tractor trailer were not hurt. But we are concerned that a professional driver would risk the lives of others in this way.
