WATERLOO, Iowa – Waterloo officials say a man escaped injury when a fuel tanker slammed into the home where he was sleeping.
Authorities said the tanker truck hit a Waterloo home early Thursday after first being involved in a crash not far from the house.
Firefighters evacuated part of the neighborhood and a hazmat team was called to help with the fuel spill. The truck driver was taken to a hospital after being extricated from the truck.
Officials say the truck driver apparently lost control after hitting a minivan and struck two parked SUVs in the home’s driveway before slamming into the house.
Further details were not immediately available.
