As we get older, we might lose a bit of our sharpness behind the wheel. Our reaction times might rise just a little bit, or we might not see certain things before it’s too late. These are all causes for accidents, but there are also times where the unexplainable happens. This is such a case.
It was early in the morning, and families were sleeping peacefully in their beds. One person was driving the streets of Dunwoody, possibly tired, possibly going home after a long night. We’ll unfortunately never know what the driver of the vehicle was thinking or looking for, or just how tired they were.
The driver crashed his car into a Dunwoody home. It woke the family up, and fortunately they were all in different parts of the house, out of the range of the accident. However, the car caught fire and started burning the house down. Firefighters arrived, but they didn’t get there in time to keep the structural integrity of the house. The family made it out fine, but the driver of the vehicle, an elderly man, didn’t make it.
The story is unclear about whether the man died during the crash or during the fire. Regardless, the family is going to need to be moved away from the home while they get it repaired.
