Unwelcome instrusion

by: Eric Norberg,

It was shortly after midnight in the early morning of Friday, June 23rd, when a pickup truck clipped a parked car on S.E. 72nd just north of Ogden Street, then ricocheted into the side of the Nelson Lyon home, smashing in the front of the house, and alarming the couple asleep inside.

There were no injuries, but the 29-year-old female driver of the pickup was arrested on a charge of driving while drunk. The photo of the house above was taken after dawn the same morning, as the residents began their cleanup of the mess.
