Car crashes into house

Another car. Another house. Another crash.

And the fence was hit as well.
Richard Daluz and Jen Rodriguez were watching television at their home in the 2100 block of Farmsville Drive at 9 p.m. when they got the startling surprise.

"It sounded like either a plane crashing outside or honestly, if lightning were to strike a couple feet away from you," Daluz said.

Before the car hit the home, it took out a mailbox and shattered a wooden fence, police said.

The boy had taken his father's car without permission so that he could play basketball in the driveway when he lost control, police said.

"He tried to back it up and he didn't realize how strong the car was," said Officer Michael Guzman of the San Antonio Police Department.

The boy was twelve. The police gave him a ticket for driving without a license.

How do you cite the 12 year-old? The car did the damage.

I work with the guy (the victim, that is), actually. The voicemail he left his boss was hilarious :X

"I can't come to work today... there's a car in my living room..."

If his boss reads this blog, then he knows of the on-going battle between cars and homes, and he probably accepted the guy's excuse without question.
