Truck strikes SUV, building on Rockland Main Street
Rockland — A landscaping truck slammed into a sports utility vehicle and then a Main Street restaurant Friday afternoon, April 14.
There were no injuries, according to police, but pedestrians had been on the sidewalk moments before the truck from Doug Fales Selective Cutting and Landscaping slammed into 415 Main St., which is occupied by In Good Company.
Fire department officials and the city's code enforcement officer were at the scene to assess the damage to the building. There appeared to be no serious structural damage, but there was damage to the exterior.
A sports utility vehicle parked on Main Street in front of the building was heavily damaged.
The vehicle's owner, Janna Eggen, said she was in her office at PALS for Living when she heard the crash and felt the building shake. She went down to the street and found the damage to her vehicle.
She said police told her the driver of the truck had fallen asleep.
Police said they would release information on the crash later in the day.
The crash occurred at about 2 p.m. and Main Street traffic was being re-routed by police.
