A close call between a house and a FedEx delivery van was caught on a surveillance camera recently. The video has now gone viral. The driver allegedly forgets to put the van into park and it rolls backwards down a declining street. Somehow, the van narrowly avoids hitting a tree and a house as it attempts its getaway.
