Police attend incident at Langley construction site

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.
