Too funny. Happened to our neighbor across the street from us. A very nice Mercedes just veered right off the road and into her concrete front steps. Smashed them and the steps all up. Funny thing is, it was later determined he was completely sober and clean from drugs and no mechanic fault was found in the car...

I told her I know she was asleep but she HAD to see this. She couldn't help but laugh her butt off at it, especially the four guys standing around trying to figure out what to do. We witnessed the whole event and then she went to bed. She told me this morning she'd have been mad if I hadn't woken her.

Ironically, this isn't the first time a car had crashed either into my house of the house next door. 5 years ago I was sleeping and a high speed car chase ended in my front yard. That time I didn't miss the opportunity to go out and yell at the guy for running from the police and call him an idiot. This time the neighbor is too big to make such comments to. LOL
I'm laughing so hard picturing you and your sleepy daughter peeking out through the curtains, giggling and trying not to laugh too loudly while watching those fools try to figure out how to fix the mess they made! Tooooo funny. I can't believe it's not the first time, either!!! This is like sitcom stuff!

Some people never learn do they? Drinking & driving just don't go together...

Callisto - aren't you assuming an AWFUL lot to think liquor was involved?

My in-laws lived in a condo for retired people in Florida, and one day a little old man drove his cadillac into the swimming pool.

When I was 16 and just beginning to drive, I crashed my car into a neighbor's brick wall and almost into her pool. It's something that you never live down-- ever. Unless your friends are all rednecks... then maybe you get some sympathy.

That is very funny and also the 2nd part of waking your daughter and both watching! The part with him calling and a bigger truck comes to pull it!
