Authorities are cleaning up after a two-vehicle accident caused a Coca-Cola truck to flip on its side and strike a house at Northeast 15th Court and Ives Dairy Road Friday.
A red Mercedes and the semi truck crashed about half a block away. Four people were hurt, one with somewhat serious injuries and three with minor injuries, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Dan Guffey said.
"The truck lost control, causing structural damage to a house," he said.
The truck rolled into the house, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Alvaro Feola said.
The crash caused 50 to 100 gallons of diesel fuel to leak on the ground, authorities said. Firefighters blanketed the ground with foam to make sure the fuel didn't catch on fire, Guffey said.
A lot of Coca-Cola also spilled on the ground.
Fifteen fire rescue vehicles responded to the scene, Guffey said.
Three tow trucks were used to lift the semi truck and bring it upright later Friday night.
The FHP is investigating what caused the accident, interviewing witnesses and the drivers, who were taken to a hospital.
