Reports: Man ‘went nuts’ with front-end loader, wrecks homes

|

An angry man drove a front-end loader into homes near Port Angeles, Wash., Friday afternoon, knocking one off its foundation, police said. The scene was about two and a half hours west of Seattle.

The incident happened shortly before 12:30 p.m. along Pioneer Road near Baker Street, just outside the city limits, according to the Peninsula Daily News. The newspaper reported that a truck also was damaged.

A neighbor told the newspaper that the man “just went nuts,” demolishing the two homes. The scene also cut power to thousands of Port Angeles residents.

“We have a number of power lines down in the area and that’s preventing us actually from going to make sure there are no other injuries or other problems inside the containment area,” Clallam County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Borte told the Daily News.

The scene led police to close US Route 101 in both directions for about 15 minutes. See a picture of the damage here from KIRO/7.
