  • A 15-tonne lorry lost control driving up a steep slope and fell onto a home in the Fuente Olletas area

A 15-tonne lorry fell onto a home in the Fuente Olletas area of Malaga on Wednesday.

The house was empty at the time of the incident and nobody was injured as the driver walked away unscathed.

Sources said that the driver lost control driving up a very steep slope that, despite his attempts to brake, led to the lorry smashing into the house.

Neighbours in the area explained that this was not the first accident that had happened there and added that a disaster like this “could happen any time”.

More than just the house was lost, the lorry destroyed the owner’s beloved Mercedes from his student days and a moped that was in the garage adjoining.
