PG Garbage Truck Collision 02-10-14 14:30 av

Several homes and cars were damaged in Pacific Grove Friday after they were hit by a run-away garbage truck.  The 5:40 a.m. collision occurred at the corner of 14th Street and Lighthouse Avenue.    Authorities say the truck was picking up a dumpster, when the dumpster became loose and rolled downhill on 14th Street. The driver of the truck tried to chase after the dumpster, before the truck, which was not put into park, also began to roll downhill.   The truck ended up striking two parked cars, and a house, before hitting an SUV that was parked in the driveway of another home and pushed the SUV into that house.   Both homes sustained structural damage along with a broken gas line.   The driver received minor injuries, no other injuries were reported.    Drugs nor alcohol are believed to have been factors in the incident.
