Crews are cleaning up after a dump truck lost control and knocked part of a Sausalito home off its foundation. Crews worked hours to get that truck out of there, so that's not a problem anymore, but the aftermath is.

Work continues with crews paving the street today, work they were doing yesterday when a driver ended up bulldozing through a four car garage on Lower Crescent Avenue.

"All of a sudden there was tremendous crash," said Don Beers, homeowner.

Beers and his wife are dealing with the aftermath of the crash and now their biggest worry is if their garage is structurally sound.

"The next thing is for inspectors to come and look at stability of the garage," said Beers.

Early Thursday morning, fire, police and the city public works department were finally able to get the truck hauled away without causing any damage to the homes below, that's where Beers and two other tenants live. Yesterday afternoon a dump truck carrying hot asphalt slammed into the garage.

"It was pretty unbelievable," said Bill Keller, homeowner.

The driver somehow lost control while trying to pave the road. The subcontractors,W.K. McLellan, was hired by PG&E after crews just installed a new gas line in the neighborhood.

The driver of the truck managed to jump out breaking his arm in the process, but no one else was hurt.
The city and PG&E say they are now conducting a thorough investigation. PG&E saying they apologize to residents and will work to make things right

"We are waiting to get our lives back together and that is going to be awhile that's for sure," said Beers.

Residents who live in the area are being escorted in and out of the neighborhood.
