A 20-year old crashed into LeAnn Rime‘s home in Lost Hills, California at approximately six in the morning yesterday. The police suspect he may have been drunk but they have to wait for the toxicology report before making a confirmation. The driver was on a suspended license — which is bad news in any case — and the accident was pretty severe. He mowed through a stop sign and went straight into light pole and the fence outside LeAnn‘s house. She was, fortunately, in North Carolina at the time.
LeAnn also got on Twitter to talk about the incident, writing, “To address the accident that happened in front of our home this morning, everyone is ok and safe. However, if drunk driving was involved it is terribly sad. My family could have been seriously injured and any situation where someone is drinking and driving should not be taken lightly. Needless to say, it was a very unsettling call to receive this morning. Thank goodness the young driver and everyone at home are ok.”
We’re really glad no one was hurt because this could have been a lot worse! Her family’s had to spend the night in darkness upon their return because the driver took out the power lines as well! LeAnn tweeted an explanation saying, “At home in LA. Going home to no power for the night cause the power lines outside our house need to be replaced cause of the accident.” That 20 year old’s ride is just beginning, though. He’s in big trouble!
