The owner of the house Clint Seaman Had this to say to Fox 13:
“It’s just a freak accident,” said Clint Seaman, “You can see the point of impact right here for the tire, and that’s what jettisoned it right into the backyard,”. “She had to of been doing 60,” Seaman said. “It was so loud it sounded like a bomb went off,” he added. “When you first wake up and see a car that’s right over your daughters window down in the basement, it’s pretty alarming,” he said. “I mean her rooms right there, that’s her bedroom window and the car was cantilevered over that,”
According to Seaman the grandson had little remorse telling Fox 13 that he said:
“He said, ‘smoke a little weed, have a few drinks, you know, what’s the big deal?’” Seaman recounted. “They were literally a foot away from killing someone that’s the big deal!”
