Truck smashes into Waltham house


The inhabitants of a Mayall Road home are seeking other shelter after a truck plowed through the house last night, police say.

Shortly after 7 p.m., the truck was traveling west on Candace Avenue when the driver struck a parked car and veered off the road, hitting the house, which sits at the corner of Mayall Road and Candace Avenue, said Lieutenant Richard Couture.

The driver was taken to an unspecified hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and an occupant of the home sustained a minor leg injury that didn't require hospital treatment.

The truck's driver, whose name is not being released, will be cited for having an expired driver's license, negligent operation and failure to keep to the right-of-way.
