Shortly before 10:30 a.m., a city utility truck from the Bureau of Sanitation crashed into a Sun Valley home injuring the female driver. The truck, which was pulling a piece of equipment behind it, careened into a car on the street, then struck a tree before crashing into the living room of the house at 12308 Sheldon Street near the 5 and 170 freeway interchange, according to Devin Gales of the Los Angeles Fire Department. An elderly couple was inside the home, but not injured. The driver was treated on scene for non-life threatening injuries.
