PLANTATION, Fla. — A woman who lost control of her car while driving through her neighborhood ended up crashing through three backyards and hitting a sunbather, according to Plantation Fire Rescue.
The driver was eastbound on Southwest 21st Street around 5 p.m. Friday when, witnesses told investigators, she lost control near Southwest 52nd Avenue and plowed through a backyard fence, battalion chief Joel Gordon said
“[She] ran through a second fence in a second backyard and struck a sunbather who was a resident at that second address and then ran into the backyard of her own residence,” he said. “Tire tracks actually showed her car jumped over a pool in another yard.”
