The A69 in Cumbria has been closed this morning after a lorry crashed into a house, strewing masonry and debris across the carriageway.
It happened just after 3am at the crossroads in Corby Hill, next to the Brampton Medical Practice.
Police confirmed that the driver of the truck escaped serious injury.
The truck came to rest in the front garden of the house involved.

Two key Cumbrian roads could be expanded under government plans to invest an extra £15 million in the country's road network.
A study looking at the case for turning both the A66 and A69 into dual carriageways will be carried out.
The study for the two trans-Pennine routes is one of nine schemes for the north west.
