ROSWELL, Ga. — A home in Roswell received an unwelcome delivery earlier this week that would be hard to believe if there weren't photos to prove it.

Roswell Police shared them along with a basic description of how an Amazon Prime delivery van ended up flying backward into a home it wasn't even delivering to.

"A delivery truck had apparently suffered a parking-brake failure and rolled backward from a driveway across the street, striking the front door of a residence with the accuracy [of] a 300-club bowler," police said online, Saturday.

Two photos show why the out-of-control van's accuracy was so surprising since it not only rolled up a long driveway but managed to slam through the front door dead-center.

Despite the somewhat controlled chaos that erupted, police said no one was injured.

It's perhaps because of this, the department was comfortable sharing the oddity alongside a play on words anyone who receives home deliveries is likely acquainted with.

"DELIVERY NOTIFICATION: Package has arrived," the post said. "LOCATION: Inside your living room."
