Driverless Cement Truck Plows Through 5 Garden Walls, 2 Cars, 1 Lamp Post

Sometimes, even experienced drivers make mistakes but they’re not always as expensive as this one was: the driver of a cement truck probably forgot about the hand brake and had to watch it go down a steep incline, plowing through people’s front yards.

The incident actually happened in August this year Worcester, West Midlands, UK, but video of it is just now going viral. It was shot by 56-year-old Guy Hallam, who was on his way to work on his bike and he was able to capture it on his helmet-mounted camera.

You can also see it at the bottom of the page. One of the workers has to stand by and watch as the truck rolls through people’s garden walls, knocking down one lamp post and hitting 2 parked cars. The driver is also on the scene, running after the truck. To say that he looks upset would be today’s biggest understatement.

The truck, labeled Euromix “quality mortar where you need it” (let the jokes write themselves!), eventually comes to a screeching halt, but not after causing serious damage in its 150-meter cannon-ball trajectory.

The Daily Mail contacted Hallam, who says this could have had a much worse ending. Luckily, the kids were on holiday and it was early in the morning, so there was no one on the street when the truck started down the hill.

“It happened just after 7.30am when I was cycling to work,” he says. “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,” Hallam adds. “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.”
