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.

Read 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.
