Even more shocking then having this in our front yard, is that the driver crawled out and was absolutely fine!
I was sitting in my office, when I heard this horrible commotion out front. I feared the worst and my stomach did a flip flop when I looked out our front window and saw this. I called 911 and was headed out the door when the driver crawled out. I was so thankful because I was very concerned about what I was going to find.
He doesn’t remember what happened, but he thinks he fell asleep and drifted off th road. He hit our driveway and went airborne and then flipped in our front yard.
Aside from a tree being pushed over and some of our hedge being taken out, the damage was very little and there is so much to be thankful for.
My husband and son were gone for the weekend and Theron was so disappointed that he missed the ambulance, sheriff, and tow truck! The tow truck driver flipped the truck over…
and all of the damage could be seen. Looking at these pictures, I am still stunned that he was ok.
It made for an interesting day!
Wow, what a scary thing to have happen. Yes, a lot to be thankfull for, both you and for him. Sound like he was pretty close to your front door. What a way for him to wake up…
Goodness gracious! That’s something you don’t see every day, especially in your own front yard. What a close call. I hope he doesn’t drive while tired again. It’s so dangerous. I initially wondered if it had been a driving-and-texting situation when I saw the pictures. Thank heavens nobody was in your yard at the time!
You’re right; it truly is amazing that someone crawled out of that flattened vehicle alive, much less unscathed! Glad it didn’t do more damage at your place as well; I hope he is paying to fix the fence!
Wow – he was all too close to the house, in my opinion… Thank goodness he and YOU were ok 🙂 Too close for comfort!!!!
Yeah, it was a little close. Even scarier when you look at the tire tracks and see that the hedge on the right side of our driveway actually kept him from coming into our house! Several of the neighbors told him that next time he needed to go home and sleep after working all night before he went hunting, I’m hoping he listens. He is coming back later this week to clean up the hedges and fix the fence. His insurance will cover whatever expenses there are.
Good grief!!! That’ll wake you up!
With a title like that and the season I am happy to read it wasn’t a witch or something like that. However, what did come flying through your front yard was very scary and I was relieved to read the driver and your property did not sustain worse damage. Poor Theron, missing out on all the “fun” !
I was definitely expecting something different from the post title…thinking birdlike…..nothing birdlike about a flying hunk of metal (other than the fact he was airborne!). I hate that feeling about not knowing what you’re going to find when there is a wreck (used to live in a house that regualarly had wrecks on the road in front), suprised he was totally ok….and extremely happy that you and yours are ok!! Whew!!
