The Iowa man’s house in a very unlucky location
The old saying in real estate is ‘location, location, location’. Terry Tigner wishes his house was in a different place. Tigner must have the luckiest address in the state of Iowa. There is nothing fancy when you look at his home in the countryside of Norwalk, Iowa. That is until you look at the intersection near his house.
The T-junction of County Highway R63 and G14 is near Tigner’s house. Last month an SUV drove through the intersection and ended up crashing into Terry’s house, according to the Des Moines register. Tigner told the Register that a loud bang woke him up and he wasn’t sure where he was. He grabbed some clothes and his handgun and went to see what had happened. The SUV that hit his house was in his garage, a few meters from his room. This story is bad enough, but this isn’t the first time a vehicle has hit Tigner’s house.
This is the third time in two years that a car has hit Tigner’s house! Third time! Six other vehicles crossed this same intersection and ended up in his front yard, a few meters from his house! What is an owner supposed to do? Registry reports that the county is aware of the problem. He lowered the speed limit near the intersection and also added flags to stop signs. But obviously, that did not prevent cars that are not his, out of Terry Tigner’s house!
Tigner tell the registry that the final repairs will include a new garage door, which had just been replaced following a previous accident, as well as new walls, windows and possibly a roof. He says he also spoke to the county engineering department about more possible changes to the intersection.
Maybe it’s time to move out, Terry?
Can you pronounce these weird Iowa city names?
