(Meredith) – An 80-year-old New Jersey man is miraculously OK after a dump truck smashed through his home, causing the house to collapse.

Richard Beck, 80, fell through the first floor of his home and ended up in the basement after the dump truck came barreling into the side of his house.

The incident was captured on camera.

The driver was identified as Rogelio Serrano, 69. Police have not said what forced the dump truck off the road and into the home.

Both Beck and Serrano only suffered minor injuries. As for the house, the damage is too severe for Beck to live there, as investigators have deemed it uninhabitable.
