Just before 7:00 pm tonight, an SUV went out of control and landed in a front yard of a home on the 4700 block of Beach Drive (near Jacobsen Road).
Apparently the man driving lost consciousness and some managed to wind up on the sidewalk, narrowly missing a telephone pole, careening down the sidewalk about 20 feet, passing a parked car on the sidewalk before wiping out a fence and landing in shrubbery. You can see the front end of the car that was passed on the sidewalk – which appears to be undamaged.
A Beach Drive neighbor who was walking on the west side of the street just saw white fence flying through the air as the accident happened.
The driver of the vehicle was seen alert and talking on his cell phone in the aid car on the way to the hospital.
It’s a miracle that no one was walking on the sidewalk on warm evening like tonight when this all happened.
