It's a small world. I forwarded the photo above to my brother-in-law in the TriCities area, who emailed back that the house involved belongs to a retired air-traffic-control colleague friend of his.
Apparently the FedEx driver had backed his truck up the steep driveway opposite to facilitate unloading a parcel, then forgot to set the emergency brake...
I like the homeowner's response:
"The first reaction is, "My goodness,'" said homeowner Phil Rickman, who arrived shortly after the van plowed into his foyer. "My second reaction is, 'Is anyone hurt?' It was an accident. Accidents happen. You have to keep everything in perspective."
A nice sturdy hedge would have been useful there.ReplyDelete
