Driver charged after commercial vehicle lands on house near Sudbury

The driver has been charged following a bizarre accident in the Sudbury area that saw a commercial vehicle  end up landing on a house.

The OPP shared a photo of the accident, which occurred on Highway 64 in Alban, with a motorist later releasing dashcam footage on Facebook.

“Investigation revealed the eastbound commercial motor vehicle drove off the roadway into a driveway culvert and then struck a hydro pole which caused the back of the vehicle to lift up and land on the roof of a house,” reads a media release from police.

“There was nobody inside the house at the time. Both occupants in the commercial vehicle were not injured.”

The driver – a 24-year-old man from Scarborough – was charged with careless driving.

“Workers with Hydro One and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) attended the scene to assist. The highway was fully re-opened at 3 a.m.,” reads a media release from police.

“The OPP would like to remind motorists not to drive distracted. It could kill you or someone you love. Drive responsibly and respect the lives of everyone on Ontario roads.”
