TYNGSBORO, Mass., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- A truck driver who drove his flatbed truck into the side of a Massachusetts home said he had lost consciousness due to choking on some Wendy's chili.

Eric Gremm, 59, said he was driving the truck with a load for Sherburne Lumber of Tyngsboro, Mass., Wednesday when the Wendy's chili he was eating "went down the wrong pipe," the Lowell (Mass.) Sun reported Monday.

Emergency responders said Gremm lost consciousness and crashed into the side of a two-family house.

"I didn't even realize it happened," he said. "I'm glad I didn't knock two houses down. I sure wrecked that one."

Authorities said no major injuries were reported from the incident.
