Bromley rubbish truck crashes into Kingsleigh Walk garage
THIS was the scene in Kingsleigh Walk, Bromley, this morning (November 2) after a rubbish truck crashed into a garage wall.
No-one is believed to have been hurt in the crash which happened at around 7.45am but there has been considerable damage to the garage and a neighbouring garden wall.
A mother-of-two, who lives in nearby Oakham Drive, was woken up by the noise of the accident.
She said: “My husband and I were in shock and we walked out.
“The wall was on the verge of collapsing.
“We said what was the problem and they said the brake failed and the truck rolled back.
“The cars in the garages are all smashed up.
“We were talking with the neighbours and saying how thankfully nobody was personally injured.
“It would have been very serious if there had been a passerby near the truck because it could have killed somebody.”
