The Indy Star reports a story about a couple who doesn’t have much luck with keeping cars out of their house. Like many other Colts fans, Leigh and Tim McCall spent Sunday watching the Colts play in their final season game.

Before they knew it, a Chevy Equinox had crashed into their home. The fortunate couple managed to avoid any injuries. Although a car or truck in a living room might be a strange sight, it’s just an ordinary day for the McCalls.

The driver, Katie Anderson Spears, 29, survived the accident without sustaining any major injuries. She told firefighters she had lost control of her vehicle after crossing nearby railroad tracks. The railroad tracks are within 200 feet of the house.

According to the local fire department, the Equinox is the eleventh vehicle to crash into the McCalls’ home in thirty years. The home is a duplex located at 56 S. Warman Street. Pat Frazee, Leigh’s mother, lives on the other side. She also survived the incident without any life threatening injuries. Frazee says she has unsuccessfully appealed to government officials to help with the problem. Read more about this residential car magnet at the Indy Star website.
