Ontario Jeep driver takes out two fences and a garage 

Ontario Jeep driver takes out two fences and a garage 
Autos
Police in Shelburne, Ontario have charged a 62-year-old man with careless driving after he crashed his Jeep through several fences on one property and into the side of a garage on another. 

The Tweet by the OPP Central Region calls it a botched “parking job,” but it’s unclear whether the garage or the yard pictured belonged to the driver. In fact, the three photos are basically the only clues as to what actually went down here.

From the images, it looks like the Jeep may have lost control on the street, veered into the oncoming lane, hopped the curb and narrowly missed a row of mailboxes before crashing through the first wooden fence.

It appears that it traversed that back yard at speed, narrowly missing a shed before ploughing through the fence on the other side, continuing across the alley, and finally ramming into the back of a garage.

Nobody was injured, including the driver of the 2007 Jeep Cherokee. But he was charged with careless driving. 

Remember, just because you lose control of your vehicle and have an “accident” — even when you have the best of intentions like with his firetruck — you can still be charged with careless driving if police believe you weren’t exercising due caution.
