The ice made for a wild ride for the driver of a heavy duty tow truck in Berks County this afternoon. It happened shortly before 12:30 on Route 73 near Water Street in Earl Township. Police say the truck was approaching the scene of an accident too fast for the road conditions and slid on the ice. They say he crashed into a guardrail, struck a car, slammed into one house, and then came to rest against the corner of another house. The driver of the tow truck was taken to the hospital. We have no word yet on the extent of his injuries. The driver of the car he hit was not hurt.
