When operating a vehicle, it is important that you are fully alert and aware of your surroundings. If you are under the influence of alcohol or highly distracted while behind the wheel, you should not be on the road. You are not only putting yourself in danger, but others as well. If you are not focused on the task at hand, you could cause damage to yourself, other cars, other people, or even properties. Can you imagine crashing into someone’s home after losing control of your vehicle?

This situation is very possible and sadly occurred in the local area. According to the Dayton Daily News, a motorist was injured after crashing into a Kettering home. The person drove through the yard and hit a home on Grist Mill Court two week ago. The driver was reported to have suffered a head injury, but it was luckily non-life threatening. The homeowner was left with many damages to their property, and a building inspector was called to inspect the ruins.
