A tow truck struck an apartment building Monday in Costa Mesa, authorities said. No one was hurt, but a resident was displaced from the home in the 300 block of East 20th Street. Firefighters responded to the scene after receiving an emergency call about 12:50 p.m., according to Battalion Chief Kevin Diamond. While moving a car, the truck somehow got into gear, rolled and then hit the building, Diamond said. Firefighters deployed three fire engines, one fire truck and the urban search & rescue team.

Newport Coast Drive was briefly closed Wednesday as workers from a local cement truck company did some heavy lifting to clean up their mess from a few weeks ago. After drilling holes in the drum and securing it with slings, a tow truck pulled up the multi-ton cement mixing bowl that had toppled down the Newport Coast hill last month in a crash. California Highway Patrol crews tried to pull up the drum the day of the crash, but didn’t have vehicles big enough to lift it, officials said.
