    Look at what my neighbor did

    Thought I share what happened to my house this last Friday night. Neighbor left their truck unoccupied, didn't put in park and left the ignition on. Hubby was on the other side of the wall. He got a few cuts, but is fine. (other than shell shock syndrome).
    Sure messed up the wall, some electronics, ceiling and carpet. We have to wait till Friday for their auto insurance to come out and do an appraisal. Can't wait to see how much our propane bill is going to be!

    Thank you, Pudge113!
    At first, I had no idea if there was anyone in the truck. It was dark, no flash light, truck engine running and no one was answering me. I was just about to bust the window when the neighbor finally told me it was her vehicle. I was relieved at the same time annoyed. I had no idea what I was going to have to deal with once I did break the window.

    So glad you and yours are ok! Did the neighbor give any reason better than alien abduction for leaving a vehicle in that condition?

    Make sure you check very good for damages. A friend of mine had this happen to his house and after they fixed it he found some other things wrong and they gave him a hard time about it.

    Neighbor said that her husband just had chemo that day,they just got back from grocery shopping and they both had a lot on their mind and forgot to put the truck in park. I assume she had her truck running while she helped her husband into the house before planning on getting the groceries out.
    After truck got parked in our wall, later her husband came down with a wagon and got the groceries out of the back of the truck, slipped and sprained his arm and she had to take him to the ER.


    Will do Reca!
    Our ceiling is starting to bulge down a little more everyday along with the cracks inside the house seem to be worse.
    I'm wondering if they will replace the carpet considering it is all scrunched up,has millions of glass particles that I doubt can be completely cleaned up. With a grandbaby in the house, I'm certainly going to ask/tell the insurance company.

    We did get lots of pictures and took a live video of the tow truck pulling the truck out.

    the insurance company will do what you make them do. As Reca said document it with photos of every description. Their insurance btw should be the ones paying for your damages.

    Thanks everyone! We are still waiting for their insurance people do get their butts out here.
    What's really weird, is right before it happened I was telling my husband he needed a new truck, was talking about quantum physics and the laws of attraction. yep, I'm done talking to him about that stuff.

    I'm glad everybody is alright. If you're concerned about how the hole in your wall will affect your heating bill, you may want to bring that up with the insurance company as well. Depending on the weather there etc, it may be a significant cost and my increase subtantially as a direct result of the the accident.

    The auto insurance co., (that even a lizard could get a job at) came out Friday.
    We also had a contractor come out too and check things out. So far, so good. We get a new wall and windows, ceiling will be fixed, new carpet and some electronics, laptop station on the chair and forgot to ask if they would replace the beer my husband just sat down to drink. Probably will be all done in a couple if months.

    Fries, .... I'd do donuts, but no fries

    Good to hear, hopefully it gets done quicker then a couple of months, more like a couple of weeks. Mid winter I would insist the insurance company put a rush on it.

    As far as the beer goes, think your neighbor owes you a few.

    Well, maybe your repairs are more difficult than what a caveman could do?
