A semi-trailer truck was making a delivery of an excavator to a residential construction project in Langley when it rolled down a hill, witnesses said.
It happened Monday around noon in the 7100 block of 206 Street.
Two eyewitnesses, who asked not to be named, said the big truck rolled backwards down a short incline, hopped a curb and landed in the front yard of an older house, taking out a tree and dumping the excavator in the process.
No injuries were reported.
Police were at the scene and spoke to the semi driver.
