Vehicle smashes into Tenn. house - again

Submitted By AP Wire Service

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP), Dec 29 - A Tennessee National Guardsman had his Christmas Eve interrupted by news that a vehicle had smashed through his house - in the exact same spot another one did nearly two years ago.

In February 2010, a runaway construction truck had run into Doug Edmisten's house when he was home from Iraq for his son's birth, The Knoxville News Sentinel reported (

Edmisten says he, his wife and their son were visiting family when his neighbor called and said, ``Merry Christmas. There's a van in your house.''

The vehicle belonged to a neighbor, who told police he'd been working on the vehicle's brakes.

The last time, the Edmisten family spent 65 days in a motel while the damage was repaired. Edmisten figures they'll celebrate their son's second birthday at a motel.
