Only in America! The start of life in a brand new home wasn’t a moving experience for one US family as their removals company managed to reverse a lorry into their house, causing thousands of pounds’ worth of damage.
“There’s no word to describe it. My son called and said: ‘You better get home. There’s a truck in your living room,'” said homeowner Roger Castell.
The truck left skid marks 200 feet long and wedged itself into the house. To get the truck out, authorities needed to make sure the home would not collapse. A crane was used to lift the truck out of the house and then to hold up a portion of the roof that was resting on the truck.
“It looks like I won’t be home for a while,” Castell said.
To coin a catchy tagline used by a well-known British opticians… “Should have gone to Robinsons.”
