This intersection is at the east end of our property.
For some reason, it’s a challenging intersection. Maybe the signs disappear every so often. I dunno. But cars frequently come straight through the intersection and end up in the ditch (note how the grass doesn’t grow here because it gets torn up so often).
However, last week, a car missed the ditch and instead ended up in our field. The problem was the gates to the field were closed at the time, so a gate, two fence posts and a few dozen feet of fence ended up in the field too.
The driver was fine. Our gate, not so much.
Dude must have been moving because the fence and posts are deep in the field.
And the posts are very, very shattered. The biggest post is actually broken in two pieces. Insane.
Even the metal hinge that’s almost an inch in diameter snapped.
Car parts and shards of the posts are scattered through the field.
Yup. It is.
The field is far enough from the house that we didn’t actually see the accident. We found out about all of this when a police officer showed up at the house on Saturday afternoon. I got a quote from our farmer on how much it’s going to cost to fix the fence and the gate, and I called Mr. VW to discuss where we go from here. He’s supposed to drop off the money this afternoon. Fingers crossed he follows through.
