Car Crashes into Lauderdale Lakes House

Car Crash HouseWhen you’re sitting in your home, the last thing you expect is for a car to crash into your house. Yet, this is what happened at a Lauderdale Lakes house recently. Consider a recent article for WSVN titled “Car crashes into Lauderdale Lakes house.”

According to the author of the article, “Police are investigating after a woman managed to crash her vehicle into a Lauderdale Lakes home, early Thursday morning. The accident happened at around 3 a.m., at a home along Northwest 52nd Avenue and 39th Street. According to officials, the driver of a Volkswagen Jetta, identified as 20-year-old Nicole Bailey, lost control coming around the curb and crashed through the front of the house. Inspectors said that every single room inside the home was damaged, except the bathroom where two people were inside at the time of the crash. ‘It’s absolutely not even safe to walk inside right now,’ said the building inspector, Dean Decker. Luckily, one of the victims who lived here only received a few scratches after the car crashed through the outside wall. The car plowed through the living room, dining room and kitchen, knocking down two support beams. ‘It was a pretty severe event going through the house like that,’ Decker said. ‘I’ve been a building official for 20 years, I don’t think I’ve seen one go that far into a house.’ Investigators said the car drove past a 25 mile per hour speed limit sign, skimmed a guard rail and stopped deep inside the home. According to witnesses, Bailey was found wandering around the neighborhood in her underwear and asking those in the area if they had seen her vehicle. Police were able to discover her ID, as well as marijuana inside her car. ‘In the vehicle was the driver’s ID, visible in plain view. There was also a quantity of marijuana,’ said Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles.”
