A section of Highway 64 has reopened after a tractor trailer collided with a hydro pole and landed on top of a home in Alban on Sept. 9. 

St. Charles resident, Sharon Gauthier sent this dashcam video that her husband captured on his way home from work.

In the video you can see a tractor trailer leave the highway. It appears to hit the ditch before striking a hydro pole, causing the back end of the truck to lift up and land on top of the roof of a home. 

The driver of the truck appeared to be uninjured as he exited the vehicle.

Ontario Provincial Police closed off a section of Highway 64 in Alban between Courchsene Road and Highway 607. The highway was reopened by 3:25 a.m. on Sept. 10.
