My daughters ZJ got blasted by the driver of an XJ this morning at 4 am that fell asleep at the wheel. Miraculously there were no injuries. It was parked in front of my house and ended up in my neighbors front lawn, about 90 feet from where it was parked. The XJ rolled and landed on its wheels again, then drove home!!
i really hope no one drove either one of those jeeps home.

Actually, both were driven home, the XJ when he fled the scene, (I don't know what the hell he was thinking, since he lives on the same street, less than a 1/4 mile away, and was parked next to the house. He was followed home by my neighbors who witnessed him picking up his parts and getting in and driving away.) The ZJ after the police came and I removed the ZJ's broken rear drive shaft and backed it out the way it went in, and into my drive

Yes, yes, yes... totaled ZJ this, and rolled XJ that - that's all well and good...
But what about the neighbors lawn ornaments?!?
Just imagine what it must have been like to be that poor bee, stuck to that pole watching 5000 pounds of uncontrolled steel hurtling at him and only missing by mere centimeters. How he's still smiling we may never know.
And that child on a pedestal... it's no wonder why he looks like he's sh!tting his pants.
Wow! It must've been a scary night to be your neighbor's lawn ornaments. Thank God they're ok!
Of course, then again, we can't tell from the pictures if there are any more under under the Jeep or impaled on the front. For all we know there may have been one of those half fat ladies bent over showing bloomers or a couple of pink flamingos in the way. Or ducks with whirlygig wings that used to flutter in the breeze - only to flutter no more.
Or maybe even a gnome.
From the pictures we can see, we may never understand the true scope of the lawn ornament tragedy that unfolded that terrible night.
Seriously though, sucks about the Jeeps, especially yours. Glad nobody was hurt. Hope there's some good insurance involved.
Oh my god I couldn't see the pics during my original post - but damn! How fast was he going down your street?
And he really fled to his house down the street after the damage from the collision AND a roll? When the police went to his house, was it still out front?
