SUV accident caught on camera near Azle, TX

See also

The accident was caught on surveillance cameras that the Whitbecks owned. Rick and Mary Whitbeck live on Wells Burnett Road in Tarrant County, Texas.

The Reno Gazette-Journal's Facebook page posted this story about an hour and a half ago.

I viewed the video on the internet that showed what the surveillance cameras caught from four different angles. The SUV appears to be a white Jeep Patriot. This driver drove very fast before crashing into this house, considering it was only four seconds from when the camera first shot the vehicle that the strike was made.

One of the camera shots briefly shows the back of the vehicle (at an angle) after it made contact with the house, I'm hoping the Whitbecks' surveillance cameras have software that they can zoom in on the shots and get the license plate number. Also, they can use these video files when a police report is filed.

It is a fact that the majority of accidents with SUVs in the Reno area occur on the road or in public places like parking lots, but residences are still a possibility. Plan for these unanticipated circumstances, for it isn't easy to have to buy more building materials for your home right after an accident like this happens. But with proof from surveillance cameras, witnesses or other tools that you use to obtain evidence; it can help ease you and your family of financial strain.

Let me back up to the Texas incident for a second. The articles that I saw on the internet did not mention if a water pipe, gas pipe or electrical conduit/wires were struck. If any one of those were struck, it would make a clean-up more costly.

The reason I bring up this story is because it is worth investing in surveillance cameras for you and your family's protection. I am certain you can get a discount on home or renters insurance if you have these cameras installed at your residence, check into insurance carriers and do some research.
