Car crashes into house


OK, it didn't actually hit the house, but this car took out a stop sign, two fences, and a couple of gas meters before finally catching fire and burning up a bunch of grass.
According to investigators, a 66-year-old man was driving a car along Canyon Golf when, for some reason, he veered off the road.

After jumping a curb and knocking a stop sign 20 feet, the car went through two different privacy fences and hit two gas meter boxes before coming to a stop.

The car then caught fire, and the fire spread to the lawns of two homes. Firefighters were able to put out the flames before any homes sustained major damage. There was some exterior melting to a house reported.

The driver of the car was taken to a hospital for treatment but is expected to be okay. No other injuries were reported.

"Exterior melting." That's one hot grass fire!

For some reason? I'll tell you the reason. Fences and houses. That car as an addiction!
