Last Friday night a truck lost control in the turn near Doctors Lake Drive and Bay street and flew through the wooded area and landed in the Beaudrys backyard.

"I was sitting on the couch watching the news and all of a sudden I heard a loud bang,' said Beaudry.

The Ford ranger hit one of the columns holding up the back porch ceiling.

"I came to the door and I noticed the vehicle was backing up and he was driving toward the house again," she said.
