Dramatic video shows moment lorry deliberately smashes into East Kilbride house
A dramatic video has surfaced online showing the terrifying moment an articulated lorry deliberately smashed into a house in East Kilbride last night. The footage, which has been captured by a door cam from a nearby house, shows the Eddie Stobart lorry reverse into the house at high speed, before the driver moves forward and then reverses back into the front of the house again. The shocking incident occurred around 11.20pm last night on Lancaster Crescent, not far from The Range leisure and garden store – and saw nearby residents evacuated from their homes by police as a precaution.
