Garbage truck in house

A sneeze sent a garbage truck barreling into a home in New Jersey on Tuesday.

According to police, the truck driver lost control of the vehicle and crossed several lawns before crashing into a home in East Hanover and bursting into flames, New York TV station WCBS reported.

The family inside the house made it out safely.

The truck driver was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

According to WCBS, the crash caused so much damage that the home had to be demolished.

The driver told police he sneezed before the accident, causing a water bottle to roll under the brake.
