PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. -- Three attached townhomes have been evacuated after a dump truck driver slammed into one of them, causing significant structural damage.

The dump truck driver also got in a car accident before crashing into the townhouse, injuring two children.

A spokesperson for PGFD says that police believe the dump truck driver was driving erratically before colliding with several vehicles and then crashing into the home. No one was home at the time of the townhouse crash.

The townhouse the driver crashed into has been declared uninhabitable, but the attached townhouses should be fine.  The townhouse owners will be under the care of the Red Cross.
