Drunk woman crashes car through home





QuoteQuote:
A drunken Brooklyn woman crashed her Mercedes into a Long Island home Monday, smashing through the house and landing in the backyard, cops said.

Sophia Anderson, 21, failed to turn left or right when the road she was driving on in Huntington deadended at a T-intersection with another street, officials said.

She left a train of wreckage as she smashed through the modest house on Southdown Rd., missing the 90-year-old homeowner and her caretaker.

Anderson, treated and released at Huntington Hospital, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, police said.

She is expected to be arraigned Tuesday.

The coin's other side: Around 1990-2000 I lived north of San Francisco in a hilly village covered with giant Coast Redwoods. One night, Pineapple Express (tropical storm) winds gusted up to 100mph / 160kph and knocked one such giant onto a neighbor's house, smashing into her bedroom and crushing her bed. As it happens, she had been out partying. She came home VERY drunk. She didn't get as far as her bedroom -- she collapsed on her living-room couch. If she had been sober, the tree would have killed her. So THERE!

I hate to say this but this is actually a fairly regular occurrence around here. I think we've had half a dozen cases so far this year.

This is the first one I have seen that went all the way through a home and ended up in the backyard.

Yeah the OP's title through is a lot more accurate than the quote of into. I don't remember seeing one go clear through except in the movies

Yeah, there have been a few cars crashing into houses around here also. One of the most tragic accidents was a lady who was mowing her lawn and was run down by a drunk driver who passed out at the wheel. It hit her from behind and with the lawnmower running , she probably never heard it coming.

Sadly binge drinking is a major pastime for youth here on Long Island,
and drunk driving seems to be almost a rite of passage.

That's a rather neat little hole going through the house. The car must've been going pretty darn fast!

Reminds me of a funny drunk story I heard.

Someone was driving through Glasgow in the wee hours and saw some bloke taking a piss on the front door of a house. When he finished he pulled his keys out of his pocket and let himself in...
