A sanitation truck apparently crashed into a home and tipped over onto someone's unfortunate lawn on Monday, according to ABC Local.

The truck's brakes reportedly failed, causing it crash into a house at the intersection of Minnesota and Johnston streets in Lincoln Heights. It was unclear if anyone was home at the time. One person was transported from the scene with minor injuries, says LAFD.
