Details are emerging from an accident last night (June 29) in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
A truck reportedly crashed into a residential yard on 94 Avenue near 85 Street causing major damage.
 
Neighbour Jamie Graham said he was backing up his truck at about 10:30 p.m. when it happened.
 
"The guy just avoided hitting a parked vehicle and had a blowout at the same time after he hit the brakes," explained Graham. "[He] ended up accelerating and ended up in the neighbour's across the way."
 
Police and emergency crews arrived on scene shortly after the crash, a female passenger was then taken to hospital by ambulance.
 
"When he was out, he was a little dazed, he wasn't necessarily coherent," said Graham.
 
The homeowners were a bit shaken up but were "good about it" according to Graham.
 
Damage to the front yard was excessive with garden fabric, rocks, bushes and plastic chairs destroyed. 
 
The retaining wall, made of garden ties, was smashed through by the truck. There was no visible damage to the home itself.
 
Police have issued no comments on the incident and have not disclosed the charges. The homeowner declined an interview.
