QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - The Quakertown Fire Department was on the scene after a Coca-Cola tractor-trailer crashed into a Quakertown home on Saturday.
Coca-Cola tractor-trailer crashed into a Quakertown home.
The incident occurred around 6:30 a.m. at the intersection of Fairview Avenue and East Broad Street.
Police said the tractor-trailer driver, who reportedly could not see in the fog, failed to negotiate a curve before striking the home. The driver suffered minor injuries.
Four people were inside the duplex at the time of the crash but were not injured.
The two families who reside in the home were told it could be months before they are able to reoccupy, according to FOX 29's Kelly Rule.
Coca-Cola released this statement in response to the accident:
“The safety and security for our employees, customers and surrounding residents is our number one priority. Thankfully, there were no injuries and we are deeply sorry to the family at the home that this unfortunate accident happened. We are working with local emergency respondents to provide any necessary information.
