Cars crashed into house

A home in San Antonio has the sad distinction of being hit by cars four different times. Wet streets may have something to do with it, but neighbors think the street design is faulty, and they want it fixed so the residents can live in peace. So, the city is going to do a traffic study to see if anything can be done about it.

The KSAT-TV Defenders look into the matter at this video link.

Cars crashing into houses seems pretty routine for San Antonio. I'd quit reporting this as "strange."

It's actually the routineness of the crashes that strikes me as strange. I don't know how common this type of incident is in other cities, but it seems oddly prevalent in San Antonio. Could it be the way the road system is laid out? Could it be the overall competence of our drivers? Could it be the way neighborhoods are developed? I don't know, but it seems strange that cars crash into houses so often around here.

I don't know what it is but I remember when I was growing up there was an intersection at 36th and Fortuna that had a lot of accidents too, in particular cars would run into the apartment building on that corner. They eventually put up a traffic light and a fence, but I don't know if that helped any since those aren't my stomping grounds anymore.
