When Kathleen and George Williams returned to their Grayson, Ga. home Wednesday, they were shocked to find that someone had driven a red pickup truck into their house. Turns out , a neighbor across the street admitted to police that he was unloading the pickup with his toddler in the cab, when the boy managed to put the truck in gear. The vehicle then “rolled down at a fairly slow speed across the street,” Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith told WXIA.
Thankfully, no one but the house was injured in the incident. The crash broke gas and water lines, two windows and left a large hole in the outside wall, but the Williams say they aren’t angry with their neighbor because it was only an accident.
The Gwinnett County Fire Department was called to check the house for structural damage. George Williams says he isn’t worried about his house. “They didn’t mean to do it. So it doesn’t make any difference,” he said. “I just wanted to make sure everybody was alright. Nobody was hurt and like I said, things can be fixed, people can’t.”
