Earlier this week, a 3,300-pound piece of construction equipment rolled off of a job site and into a residential backyard in Emerald Hills. According to ABC San Diego News Channel 10, the large compactor somehow tumbled down a hill, landing in a shed in a nearby yard. Very few details have been released, but we do know this incident took place on the 700 block of Winston Drive.
At this time, there has been no word on how the compactor left the construction site. It’s unclear whether or not it was being used at the time or if it was unattended when it fell down the hill. Thankfully, nobody was in the yard at the time of the incident and no serious injuries were reported.
