Adrienne Garman has been living in the 5400 block of Lincoln Avenue for 10 years. It's been mainly quiet for the 78-year-old Skokie resident, but on Wednesday morning, she awoke to a vehicle crashing into her building, nearly entering her kitchen.
Bad weather conditions caused a woman to lose control of her SUV and make contact with Garman's ground-level patio around 8 a.m. today. Garman's daughter, Reni, said neither her mother or the driver were injured.
"She was sleeping at the time - she's 78 - and she was very scared," Reni Garman said. "She was in a deep sleep and was awoken with a startle."
