Christmas trees dumped in garden

An early seasonal delivery went badly wrong in Austria when a truck was involved in a crash and dumped 14 tons of Christmas trees in someone's garden.

Police in Vorarlberg state, at Austria's western tip, say the accident happened Friday night as a truck with a trailer loaded with trees drove through the town of Hohenems.

The trailer hit a wall, tipped over and landed in the garden of a house. A police statement said that the fire service sent 30 people to recover the hundreds of fir trees.

A passenger in the truck was injured and taken to hospital.
