Someone Took a Joy Ride!

Two downed pine trees!

Someone hit and knocked over the neighbor’s gate post, swerved across the road and demolished a mailbox and then careened across our driveway and knocked over one of our pine trees that lines our drive. They must have been going at a high rate of speed because hitting the tree didn’t slow them down. Nor did driving over and breaking off a second tree, which they dragged about 50 feet before they crossed our driveway again.

Good thing those trees weren’t any bigger!

After crossing our driveway, they swerved to the right, just missing a utility pole by inches!

Not often we wake up to a tree in our driveway!

I wonder if they knew they were heading toward our slope?

It’s nearly straight down fifteen feet!

They must have landed bumper first. There are a few parts laying in our ditch. How they managed to get out of the ditch and continue on their way is a puzzle. Must have been momentum! So be on the look-out for someone with a crunched front end, missing bumper parts and tufts of pine needles in their grillwork! Buy them a cup of coffee…they had a rough ride! At least they missed the Front Island garden!

    Gosh! What a trail of damage! At least you and your house weren’t damaged. I am surprised they weren’t injured and the vehicle a write off. I hope you can do something to replace the pines.

  4. Maybe the driver lost control of the car on icy roads, in the dark. I’m assuming this “joy ride” occurred last night.
