Homeowner mistakes thunder for truck hitting his house
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man got an unsettling and expensive surprise after a truck slammed into his home Wednesday.
“I was sitting in the house watching the news when suddenly I heard a large noise like thunder and I thought, that was the worst thunder I ever heard, and I went to the front door and saw the truck,” homeowner Clinton Milam said.
Milam watched as the driver tried, unsuccessfully, to back his vehicle away from the debris and damage he caused.
Two other passengers in the vehicle ran away on foot as did the driver before police arrived.
Police managed to track down one of those men who now faces charges.
They also found drugs had been dropped just down the street in a dumpster.
