At the 6600 block of Cipriani road sits Leonard Miller’s home. On Wednesday morning at roughly 2:00 a.m., the silence of that frigid night was broken by a deafening crash. Miller awoke to the wind rushing through his home; and the rubble that was left of two windows and a nearby wall. Through the debris, Miller saw the front end of a vehicle that had lost control and burst through his house. The most surprising part of this tale, however, is that this is the fifth time Mr. Miller has found a car in his home.
Miller is 88 years young, and has resided in this home since 1971. In all four prior crashes, records show the drivers have gone over the posted 30 miles per hour speed limit, lost control of their vehicles and crashed into his property.
While unsurprised, Miller exhibited tense consternation when stating “Damn, another car hit my home!” at the time of the event. He has been left with the bulk of the repairs each time and this time is no different. While the driver will reportedly be fined, Miller expects to be responsible for the damage. The county maintains that a traffic study will need to be conducted to implement any change for Miller but he is not hopeful. Without more protection, he believes it will inevitably occur again.
The county has a 311 emailing system that records requests in a formal manner. They have not processed an email regarding his specific intersection, so an appeal process has not begun.
