Toddler drives truck, crashes into house

A toddler was able to put a truck into gear as a parent unloaded the back, and managed to drive through a wall and into the house of neighbors across the street.

George and Kathleen Williams returned to their Grayson, Georgia home after a day of shopping to discover the scene, with the truck sticking halfway out of their home.

"A little red pickup truck from across the street," George Williams said. "And it was driven by a 2 year old."

"Just accidentally, the child was able to put the car in gear and it rolled down at a fairly slow speed across the street," said Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith.

The boy was not injured, but the truck broke through an outside wall and two windows into the Williams' basement. Williams said it broke a gas line and a water line.

"They didn't mean to do it, so it doesn't make any difference," Williams said. "Nobody was hurt and like I said, things can be fixed, people can't."
