Truck Drives Through HouseSKYWAY – A mother and her two kids survived a scary crash Saturday morning when their pickup crashed into one side of their Skyway  home, and out the other side.  Sergeant John Hall with the King County Sheriff’s office said that the mom was backing out of their drive way when she may have hit something.  The mom said that suddenly her pickup lurched forward, carshing into her house, and exiting the other side.  Hall said that the truck came to rest perched on an embankment, over the road below.

The two kids, a 5-year-old and 10-year-old were transported to Valley General hospital, their condition unknown.   King County Sheriff’s investigators are trying to determine the cause of the accident.  Hall said that the mom may have accidentally hit the accelerator, causing the truck to crash into the house, which is in the 10800 block of Garden Place South.

    Hah! Hah! Hah! Gotta love the headlines. But this is no laughing matter. The driver should be forced to retire from driving permanently since her kids will be scarred for life!

    I get that accidents happen, but if you accidentally put your foot on the gas, isn't there a point where you realize that and immediately slam on the brakes? Not continue to plow through your own home all the way through the other side! I guess common sense isn't so common these days regarding anything that happens to people etc. It just doesn't make sense that you would keep your foot on the gas and make it through the other side of your house, seriously. Well, I hope the kids are alright, I can only imagine how freaked out they were and are now.

    The level of stupidity and lack of skill is reaching new levels, and only shows that some people probably should not be driving. Do people even have to take a test to get a license any more? Not that it matters when you count the number of drivers that don't have one.
