There's a Car in My Backyard!

I went to the pet store this morning to pick up some dog food. On my way back, I could see into the intersection of the main road that passes just behind my house, and there was a car that had been hit from the side sitting there in the middle of the road. I thought "That looks bad. I wonder what happened." I didn't see any other cars around, so I didn't know what other cars were involved.

As soon as I turned the corner, the accident was out of my mind - "out of sight, out of mind" is usually how I function. I took Anna's dog food into the house, and went to the back door to get her. This was what I saw:
I soon realized this was where the rest of the accident was - in my backyard! I quickly wondered and worried about where my dog was. Her yard is divided from the rest of the yard by that fence with the blanket hanging off it. She doesn't like other people much, so I was concerned when I didn't see her pacing up and down, barking at these people in the back yard. I scanned the yard, and found her cowering as far from this scene as possible. When she saw me, she quickly ran into the house. I ran out of the house to get more pictures.

Here you go:

My back fence.

Note here -- the boy standing is the driver. The boy on the far right, sitting on the ground, is the son of the owner of the Lexus. He's crying, apparently quite afraid for what will happen when dad finds out.

The car went through my back fence, into my side fence and into the neighbors garage.

I've been in contact with their insurance. Let's just hope that Lexus had good insurance. I could sure use a new fence.

Oh my goodness....let's hope no one was seriously hurt...how did that happen? How did he lose control of his car? Ouch!

Happy Valentines Day!

How horrifying! Thank God the dog was okay. One day you are going to look back and laugh so hard about this. Actually, I'm one of those nervous laughers. I would probably be laughing hysterically after I found the dog.

Happy Valentine's Day! Even though your working!

Wow, that's crazy! I hope they pay for a new fence!

That's funny. I just saw you on the local news talking about this. Guess we're neighbors. :)

Hey RN, to tell you the truth, I'm not sure anyone really knows how this happened. The only thing I know for sure, is the driver was not paying attention (looking at his cell phone) and hit another driver. Which I assume then sent him out of control and into my yard.

Jolynn - I am laughing. I think its too unbelievable not to be funny. Especially since no one got hurt.

Amisare - how funny.I was just telling Chelle this morning how funny it would be if someone from the blogging world saw my little interview on the news. :)

At least no one got hurt, that is the important thing.
