Car Crashes Into Skokie Building

Bad weather may have been the result of an early-morning crash near Gross Point Road and Lincoln Avenue on Wednesday.

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."

Isn't that a 25 mph stretch of Lincoln Ave?

Thhis was not the result of gross stupidity or driving too fast for conditions. Nope. Never.

Actually, the byeline reads 'bad weather may have been the result ...' I guess it's really a SUVs-cause-global-warning story. Still glad no-one was hurt. :) Barry
