I wonder how long it will be until we see another anti-SUV screed based on this incident? Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt, but the house is apparently an SUV-magnet, having been hit 4 times in the past 20 years. Time for better traffic control measures in the living room??
Three women were spared serious injury Thursday when an out-of-control sport utility vehicle crashed into the kitchen where they were sitting.
Five children playing in another part of the brick home in the 8500 block of Cottage Gate Lane in northwest Houston escaped injury in the 2:30 p.m. accident.
The driver, Penny Brown Robinson, 36, who lives in the neighborhood, suffered a seizure, a Houston Police Department spokesman said.
Robinson's 14-year-old son said she started shaking and he grabbed the wheel but could not make a turn in the street. The boy suffered cuts and bruises.
Careening through the kitchen and den, the SUV narrowly missed the table where Tanika Copeland, Lavinsha Antoine and Annie Robinson (not related to the driver) were seated.
Witnesses stated that the driver tried to take a short cut through the dining room, but took a wrong turn at the den....
