Runaway lorry demolishes garden walls, flattens a lamppost and crumples a parked car

Dramatic footage has emerged showing a runaway cement lorry ploughing through five garden walls, two parked cars and a lamppost. The CPI Euromix truck bearing the slogan ‘quality mortar when you need it’ was filmed wreaking havoc on the residential street in Worcester, West Midlands.

 

 

 

 

The lorry caused damage over a 150 metre stretch after it rolled down the hill without no driver behind the wheel. Guy Hallam, 56, caught the incident on camera on his morning commute to work and said it was a miracle no one was injured.

He said: ‘It happened just after 7.30am when I was cycling to work. ‘I think the lorry had been left unattended and had somehow rolled off. It actually crossed a main road further up the hill, luckily it was early in the morning, and during the school holidays. ‘If it had been during term time there would probably have been children walking to school along the path it ran over. ‘I was shocked to see it happen because I would have turned right at the end of the road and if I’d been there a few seconds earlier it would have been coming directly towards me.
