Most people believe that they’re safe from car accidents when they’re relaxing at home with their family and friends. It happens, though. One family found both their home and their families in the middle of a two-vehicle car crash that left six people injured.
According to authorities, the accident occurred in the 600 block of Dayton Circle. One of the vehicles involved lost control and veered into the yard of a home, smashing into the carport. A trampoline that children had just happened to be playing on at the time of the crash now lies in a mangled heap near the damaged wall.
Even though one of the six people injured in the crash was a child, the homeowner considers it a miracle that his own 6 and 4-year-old sons were not injured in the accident.
Fire rescue crews arrived on the scene and later transported five adults and one child to an area hospital for treatment. One of the injured was listed as a trauma alert. None of those who were injured had life-threatening injuries. Fortunately, the damage to the carport was not enough to displace the family from their home.
