Strange News With Chip Douglas – House Meet Car, Car Meet House

An alleged drunk-driving accident in suburban New Orleans had two surprise twists: one, the house the driver rammed had been hit by another car three weeks earlier, and two, the person behind the wheel blamed the occupants of the house for causing the wreck.  Reports are that the Figueroa family, of Terrytown, hadn’t had time to repair the home after the first accident, a twist of fate that meant no family members were in the path of driver Charles Aucoin, who allegedly smashed his Mustang into the family’s parked vehicles, sending one of them, a red Dodge Ram, ramming into the already-damaged home.  Aucoin reportedly tried to flee the scene of the Christmas-morning accident, telling the Figueroa family, “‘Y’all are the ones that messed up my car because y’all got in front of me.’” Jefferson Parish sheriffs arrested the 45-year-old on suspicion of DUI; he later was found to have a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit. Nobody was harmed in the incident.
