THORNTON -- A water truck apparently rolled down a hill from a Thornton construction site Thursday, crashing into two homes and narrowly missing an 11-year-old boy.

Authorities say the vehicle went across a residential road, and took out a fence before crashing into the homes.

The eleven-year-old was standing at the location just moments before the crash.
