This was no accident, it was outright driver neglect and endangerment. There is
no homes within 300+ feet of this exit and to overshoot this intersection the
car had to be going over 70 mph jumping concrete 4 inch barrier islands and
launch itself like a missile into the home 100 feet beyond the east/west road
curb and gutter in a south easterly direction. The story
doesn't add up and gps readings of vehicles are not reliable guidance
systems. I think they need to proof read their information and familiarize
themselves with road address information.The story is the same in
the DN and Trib and the only commonality is the sheriff who has a family history
of prone to misinformation investigative reporting. This exit has nothing but
businesses surrounding it with concrete road barriers in all directions which a
vehicle would have to pass through to get to homes beyond the intersection exit.
@My2CentsRead the story again and you'll see that they are talking
about 4500 south meaning the eastside belt of I215 not the west side belt exit
which I believe you are referring to since that exit is at 4700 south and fits
the descriptions you have given. Before you go accusing someone of false
reporting perhaps you should more carefully read the story.
On a related when I see a home at the bottom of hill and at at the end of a road
going down that hill I wonder why anyone would buy such a house. Each time a
car does down such a road the driver has to make right decisions to avoid
hitting the house.
