A delivery driver is lucky to be alive after his car was crushed by a wall collapse in Mt. Washington. According to police, the incident happened around 6:30 p.m. Saturday along Wyoming Street, near the intersection with Virginia Avenue. A pizza delivery driver had parked his car and walked away shortly before the wall collapsed and crushed the car. The car was crushed by dozens of rocks and bricks that fell from the wall. “The wall actually collapsed as he was trying to get out,” said neighbor Eric Jackson. “So, he was very close to being killed.”
