Several days later car still stuck in duplex

first_imgThe driver of a black Volkswagen Jetta lingered to stare Monday morning, before making a right turn. The driver and passenger in a passing gray -Isuzu Rodeo levied lasting glances, mouths agape, as they passed Sandra Weaver’s home — the duplex with the dirty white Chrysler stuck out the front door.The car has beckoned onlookers since it slammed into the duplex near the corner of Norris Road and East 17th Street late Friday night, driven by a man police say they stopped pursuing minutes earlier.“It’s an attraction,” and an unwelcome one, Weaver said Monday, standing in front of the home with her arms wrapped around yellow police tape.Later, on Monday night, the situation was the same.“This is ridiculous,” said Christy Grimes, 35, whose apartment next door to Weaver’s sustained considerable damage.Three nights after the crash, the car was still jammed into Grimes’ front door and she said she hadn’t slept much since the crash.“If (the driver) would have been 10 to 15 inches to the right, he would have killed my 9-year-old son,” she said.Alex Grimes, 9, had been sitting on the couch near the point of impact, and his friend Gavin Jones had been sitting on the floor near Alex.last_img read more
