GREENBRIER, Tenn. (News Channel 5) – A tow truck driver was arrested and a family was left with a badly damaged home and two damaged cars after a tractor-trailer rolled down a street into a home in Robertson County.

According to police, the owner of the truck left the semi running unattended while going into his mother’s home.
