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.
The road has remained closed as clear up work is carried out and diversions have now been set up between junction 43 of the M6 and the A689 at Brampton.
