Hummer Crashed Into Home
One woman was injured when a Hummer crashed into her home, according to the Denver Post. A Hummer drove into a residence just after 1:00 am Saturday, and a woman who was sleeping inside the home suffered serious injuries, and had to be hospitalized as a result. Police believe that the man driving the Hummer may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, which occurred in the 3500 block of west Ohio. The driver’s condition is unknown, and the woman’s injuries, while serious, are not believed to be life-threatening. There crash did leave a large hole in her bedroom wall, however.
Every year, there are over 5 million car accidents in the United States. The vast majority of these do not result in any injuries, just property damage. However, in many cases the accidents most likely to result in serious injuries are the ones that the victim would never be able to predict. When a vehicle drives into a building, it would be impossible for the people inside the building to be prepared. Pieces of debris from the building itself, in addition to the shock of a vehicle suddenly crashing through a wall can result in some serious injuries. To make matters worse, the cost of construction to repair the property damage can be incredibly high. An accident like this can create a serious financial hardship in addition to the physical injuries.
