“So, I come out, and no, my fence was run down, the debris was still flying in my face and I go to look around the corner… sure enough, there’s a car sitting in my backyard. If he would have been just four feet over, he would have creamed me.”

The blue Mercedes SUV was wedged up against a tree on her property.
