The driver of a big rig truck apparently lost control of the vehicle and crashed the truck in the parking lot of a popular La Canada-Flintridge restaurant. The accident took place around 6:30 this morning outside the Hill Street Cafe on Foothill Boulevard, as employees were arriving to work at the eatery. One person suffered minor injuries when the big rig smashed into several parked cars. According to a live report on KTLA, it is possible the vehicle's brakes failed, which caused the driver to crash.
