Yadkinville Teen Charged After Crashing His Car Into The Roof Of A House
Friday morning in Yadkinville, North Carolina began as any other day, until a young man came roaring through a quiet residential neighborhood.
Too Fast Too Drunk
According to the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, it happened around 2:30 a.m. on Friday at a home on Sugartown Road near Deep Creek Road.
Traveling at a speed of over 70 mph, teenager Tyler Caudill lost control of the car, crashing it into a tree stump and then onto a homeowner's car in the driveway before landing on the roof of the house.
Two adults and two children were inside at the time of the crash, but remarkably none of them were injured. Unfortunately the same can't be said for Tyler, who was taken to the hospital to treat his non-life-threatening injuries. His passenger was also taken to the hospital and treated for similar injuries.
Police were able to identify Tyler through his admission that he had been "consuming earlier," along with a blood alcohol concentration level of .02 roughly four hours after the crash. Because of this, he was issued two misdemeanors: driving after consuming under 21 and reckless driving.
Tyler is due in court in July, and the family whose home he destroyed is now left without a livable house.

Speaking Of Car Crashes, Did You See This Video?
Back in March, a video from California was nightmare fuel after a dashcam video showed a Final Destination-esque crash.
The video shows a Kia Soul driving down the Ronald Regan Freeway when a truck in the lane next to it suddenly loses its wheel.
The problem with this, is that the wheel pops off the truck in exactly the right spot to not allow the Kia driver to react in any way.
According to Storyful, the driver of the Kia walked away from the crash with no major injuries.
