"It sounded like a jet plane hitting my house," a neighbor said, "When I came out, I saw all the boxes there in the median."
The truck came to rest against one house. The truck's drive shaft flew off and hit another home.
"It came in over here. Blew out a tire and busted a rim," a neighbor said.
"It's one of those scene that you don't see everyday," said AFD Battalion Chief Joey Kincaid.
Crews spent hours cleaning up the boxes of cheese scattered all over the street. Firefighters said when they heard the call go out, the first thing they started to worry about was the type of cargo on board.
"We want to make sure we get the right equipment in rout. If it's a hazmat, we do that. We did respond [with] the hazmat team today with the fuel spill for the tractor itself," Kincaid said.
Amazingly, this isn't the first time this house has been hit by a truck. Another 18-wheeler hit the home in the exact same spot in 2009.
"Scary. Scary and messy," a neighbor described the scene.
As for the cheese, it was on its way to Houston to be shipped overseas, but won't make it to it's final location.
