    Can anyone explain to me how this type of accident is taking place more and more? Cars going into homes, banks, restaurants & convenience stores is becoming normal. One has to assume that far too many people are driving vehicles who should not be in the first place. Gas..Brake….Gas…Brake!!!!!!

    This is devastating, my heart goes out to the woman injured in her house. This poor lady was just minding her own business in her own house, my thoughts and prayers are with her. This could have been prevented, it will be interesting to find out the root cause of this accident. . .
