    A driverless fire truck slipped on the ice and crashed into a Delaware home as snow fell Tuesday morning.

    Firefighters were out of the truck, responding to six-car crash at Oak and Franklin streets in Wilmington around 9 a.m., when suddenly the truck began slipping on the icy road.

    "I see the truck and I say, 'Oh my God, it's coming here right now,'" said Edwin Martinez, who was in the home at the time.

    None of the firefighters and no one in the home suffered injuries but one person in one of the cars suffered minor injuries. The truck knocked the door of the home off its hinges and left some damage to the corner of the house. The wreck left the windshield of the fire truck cracked.
