A Grand Island homeowner recovered Monday after a driver nearly parked his car inside her house on Sunday.
And, this is not the first time a car has hit that home.
It is the seventh!
The sound that woke homeowner Mildred Panec is one she has become all too familiar with.
"I was awakened with a loud thud," she said.
That thud turned out to be a car barreling into the side of her house.
"It hit the pick-up, hit my grandson's car, totaled it, totaled my car," Panec said. "If our cars wouldn't have been here, they would have been inside my house."
But, it is not the first time she has had a close call like this.
"Seven times in fifteen years, that's too often," she said.
Panec said a curve in the road is to blame. She said drivers miss the curve and lose control, until her house stops them.
"Its been kind of a circus," she said.
Her concern isn't just for her property. It is also for the one next door.
It is a lot owned by Northwestern Energy, where gas and water pipes stick out of the ground in several places.
"The gas company has those valves there," Panec said. "If they hit one of those I think it would be not a good thing."
She said drivers have come close to colliding with those valves on more than one occasion.
"They missed it one time by a foot," she said. "So, it's a concern. It really is."
Northwestern Energy spokesperson Tom Glanzer said the company wasn't aware of these frequent accidents before Monday, but are now reviewing the need for added safety measures.
"We really are paying attention to what happens and if changes need to be made, we make them," Glanzer said.
Panec said in the meantime, she's not sure what to do.
"I don't know," she said. "I'm getting tired of having to replace things."
Two of Panec's neighbors said their homes have also been hit more than once.
Police said speed, distractions and driving under the influence could all be factors in these frequent crashes.
