Garner, N.C. — A Wake County woman arrived home from the hospital on Thursday to find a wrecked car against her house and a note of apology from the driver of the abandoned minivan on a chair at her front door.
Witnesses said the minivan driver lost control in a curve on Hicks Road south of Garner around 11:30 a.m. The vehicle then slid sideways, destroyed a concrete well house, spun around and traveled backwards into the home next door.
The house suffered minor damage in the crash and a telephone pedestal and speed limit sign were also damaged.
North Carolina State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
