BELOIT, WISCONSIN — We like to think we’re pretty reasonable people most of the time. You know, odd and strange things do happen on occasion, don’t they? Things like the goldfish ate your homework, the cat got your tounge, you’re feeling sick today so you don’t think I can make into work, on this Monday. All perfectly understandable things that may come up in one’s day to day life, right?
But what about, “my 2,000 lb pick-up truck just flew through mid-air and landed in the living room of someone’s condo? Have you heard that one before?
Well, if not, you’re about to.
Turns out that’s exactly what happend in the town of Beloit late Saturday afternoon. The Beloit Fire Department and The Town of Beloit Police Department were dispatched to 2919 S Park Ave in the Town of Beloit for a car vs house incident around 4:26pm.
Beloit Fire says an off-duty Deputy Fire Chief from the Town of Beloit arrived on scene first and found a pick-up truck through the roof of the garage on a condo. If that doesn’t sound quite crazy enough, the occupants of the house were home at the time it happened.
“At approximately 4:26pm on October 12, 2019 the Town of Beloit Fire Department and Town of Beloit Police Department were dispatched to 2919 S Park Ave in the Town of Beloit for a car vs house”, Beloit Fire Department said. “Occupants of the affected house were home at the time of the crash but were uninjured.”
The driver of the vehicle was identified as 37 year old Pieter E. Bruner. who resides in the Town of Beloit in the 2400 Block of S. Riverside Dr.
The investigation found Mr. Bnmer was travelling at a high rate of speed northbound on S. Park Ave when his vehicle left the roadway into an empty water retention area. The vehicle became airborne, travelling approximately 20 yards before colliding into the roof of the home.
