Video: Garbage truck rams house in Prairie Village, driver critically injured

A garbage truck slammed into a house in Prairie Village on Wednesday morning after the driver fell out of the truck into the street. The home’s owner — who was standing in his doorway when the accident happened — and a nearby carpenter ran to driver’s aid as he lay against the curb with an apparent head injury. He was taken to a hospital and was reportedly in critical condition. The incident happened at 83rd Terrace and Cedar at 11:18 a.m. The truck smashed into bedrooms on the first and second floor. Two people were home at the time but not in the bedrooms and were not hurt.
