PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An out-of-control trash truck smashed into a row of parked cars along a residential street in Philadelphia, but no injuries have been reported.
Neighbors say they heard a series of loud booms around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday that caused them to bolt out of bed.

KYW-TV says the private trash truck's driver told police there was some kind of mechanical malfunction.
Torono Welch, whose SUV was damaged, tells KYW-TV it "sounded like a train came off the track or something out here."
Police are still investigating.
An email seeking comment from the Gold Medal Environmental, which owns the truck, wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
