Raleigh man fed up with cars repeatedly crashing into home

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man says he’s getting close to giving up on his home in Raleigh after it was hit by a driver for the sixth time.

WTVD-TV reports (http://abc11.tv/2b8C3CT) Sunday that Carlo Bernarte says he’s fed up with the half-dozen crashes since he and his family moved in 2004. A drunken driver hit the home in October and later died.

Authorities confirm that a car crashed through a wall and into Bernarte’s property about 5 a.m. Saturday.

Bernarte says his insurance company canceled his homeowner’s policy over the crashes. He says city engineers have told him extending a nearby guardrail would be a safety issue because it could block the line of sight for drivers leaving the neighborhood.

He says he plans on moving his family as soon as he can.
