LAKEWOOD, Colo. (KDVR) — A truck ended up in a Lakewood resident’s living room early morning Wednesday but the misplacement of the vehicle wasn’t due to weather.

West Metro Fire Rescue said the driver mistakenly put the truck in reverse instead of drive, sending it into the front of a townhome around W. 8th Avenue and Union Street at 6:20 a.m.

WMFR said the resident was sitting on the couch in the living room when the truck crashed into the outside wall. That person was not injured.

Neighbors told FOX31’s Andrea Henderson that they ran outside after hearing a loud bang.

“I hear a big ol’ bang, I thought it was a snow plow, and I heard somebody yell,” neighbor Fred Gonzales said. “I came out and noticed their truck was backed into their window.”

The driver was checked out on scene and released.

The townhome was stabilized by West Metro’s Technical Rescue Team.
