I don't make light of anything when someone gets hurt. Hope the driver isn't hurt too badly and fully recovers. Everything else is just wood and metal.


Detective time for sure! I have to comment on that. The pic doesn't show the front of the car. Based on the damage in the left rear, it looks like the car backed into the house. Cars don't normally drive too far backwards, so it very likely was "related". I know if I backed into my own house or backed into my neighbor's house we'd all prefer to keep it on the down-low. Maybe that's why there are no names?

They are brother and sister and allegedly, she was intoxicated.  It the first time the sister has done something like this. Heard some woman, a neighbor, screaming 'How many times are you going to do this?!' Then the brother was screaming at the sister about his house. She backed through the chain link fence, into the house, the car hit something, spun around and she drove into it a second time. They loaded her into the back of an ambulance. She handed her brother a large bottle of pills at some point.

First time?  What took her so long?  Don't know if Sharkie's story is genuine or just in fun, but it's funny either way.
