WVEC in Norfolk and other local news outlets are reporting that a woman lost control of her car and crashed into a Virginia Beach residence on September 21. Police charged the motorist with driving under the influence and reckless driving.
Fortunately, no one was home at the time.
WVEC adds that according to police reports, the driver missed the curve and went careening through the yard, striking the house before ending up in the back yard swimming pool.
And Norfolk’s WTKR Television advises that according to police, the motorist was allegedly inhaling a can of computer keyboard cleaner while driving.
While we often think of impaired drivers in the context of multi-car highway collisions, this appears to be one example of the dangers posed to other persons or property from those driving under the influence in Virginia and elsewhere around the country.
Unfortunately, accidents brought about by reckless or impaired drivers cause serious injuries and death as well as property damage every day across the state of Virginia.
