READING, Pa. - Two apartments in northwest Reading's Glenside neighborhood have been condemned after being hit by an out-of-control box truck.
The units on North Court will remain off limits to their residents until repairs can be made to the building's front wall, which was taken out by the truck early Wednesday morning, according to Jeremy Searfoss, the city's fire marshal.
The truck was traveling along the 1300 block of Schuylkill Avenue when it first struck a car and then went over the sidewalk, across a grass yard, through a fence, and into the building, police said.
No one inside the building was injured. The truck's driver was "banged up," but not seriously hurt, officials said.
Police have not said whether charges will be filed in the crash.
