Parking was always a pain. The spaces are troublesome enough without losing where you parked the car in the first place. Not all of us are luxurious enough to have a garage so many of us are forced to improvise.
A man has been arrested for driving under the influence after he crashed into a northeast Oklahoma City home.
Around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, officers were called to a home near N.E. 50th and Kelley.
“I immediately called 911 when I saw that there was a car in my kitchen,” Olevia Massey told News 4.
The man behind the wheel has been identified by police as 63-year-old Lonnie Hunt.
“He tried to say it wasn’t him. He said it was some guy named Larry Jones that fled the scene, and I told him ‘That was you, I saw you in the driver’s seat when I came to the door,’” Massey said. “He appeared to me to be under the influence of something.”
Seriously, after plowing your car into another person’s home, you stumble out of the totaled vehicle and claim that it wasn’t you? Say what you will, Mr. Hunt knows how to party. I don’t blame him for lying to the homeowner. After all, it’s 5:30 in the morning; people are still trying to sleep out here. He was just trying to diffuse the already troublesome situation.
And hey, he may not have parked it in the driveway or garage; but he did make himself at home parking in the place that brings people together.
Other neighbors told News 4 that Hunt lives in the neighborhood, has fallen asleep at the wheel in the past and crashed three cars.
“I’m just thankful that he missed me and not hit my bedroom,” Massey said.
Massey also told News 4 that she heard Hunt tell officers that he did not have insurance.
Good god, is there a code red called every time Mr. Hunt goes near a car? Do kids scatter from the streets? We took my great grandmother’s keys away when she kept swerving into different lanes trying to reach for cheese balls. You people can’t get together and take Grand Theft Auto’s keys? I’m surprised the neighbors haven’t dug out trenches in front of their homes to stop any more incoming vehicles.
Let’s hope this is the final time that someone gets an impromptu aesthetic change to their home via car.
