Car Crash Sends Vehicle Flying over Pool, into Deck of Home in Northeast Philadelphia
A Northeast Philadelphia home looked like a disaster zone after a car drove through the backyard and crashed into a deck.
The frightening car accident went down a short time before 3:30 p.m. on the 10000 block of Jamison Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The automobile was traveling on the roadway when a pickup truck reportedly crashed into the vehicle. The force of the collision set off a chain of events that ended with the car perched underneath a Philly home.
The vehicle smashed through a fence, flew over a swimming pool in the backyard, and struck a spiraling staircase before finally coming to a stop underneath the deck of the house. The car crashed into a storage shed that was situated behind the home.
Witnesses who saw the car crash into the deck said that it looked like something that could only happen in a movie or on a TV show.
Thankfully, no one sustained any serious injuries as a result of the car accident. Remarkably, the driver of the car that crashed into the house was able to walk away without a scratch on her. Additionally, no one was in the backyard at the time of the car crash. The family that owns the home later told reporters that four children were planning to play in the swimming pool shortly before the accident went down.
After the accident, the driver of the car spoke with the media and expressed her relief that she survived the scary crash. The driver said that as the motor vehicle flew over the backyard pool, she thought she was about to die.
It took emergency crews and tow trucks hours to clean up the debris and mess caused by the auto accident. A tow company managed to get the car out of the backyard by lowering a long tow truck bed over the pool and pulling the vehicle away.
At this time, no criminal charges have been filed and no traffic citations have been issued in connection with the car accident. However, local law enforcement is investigating the incident and could soon decide to cite one, or both, of the drivers involved in the accident for traffic violations.
Regardless of the outcome of the investigation, it is possible that the homeowners will be able to file a civil lawsuit against the drivers for causing significant property damage.
