    I saw this accident right after it happened. Police and wrecker service was on the scene. What they have not report yet was the van went through the front of a house. You could see the entire living room of the home. I hate that the driver lost his life but I also wonder how the family that lives there was doing. I know that a child lives there because I see this child getting on the school bus some mornings. I just pray that he was not at home when this happened.
