Right now as I blog WVC Police haven't found the driver who got into an accident on 3200 West, drove up through the trees of a yard and into a fence, hit the gas meter on the side of the house, then backed up and drove back through the trees and took off. But when I talked to the homeowner she was past being scared and was turning more grateful. Only the fence and trees are slightly damaged, the gas is off now, and her home didn't explode. Julia Stepp told me when she heard the crash early this morning she thought in her half-asleep state that one of her kids had fallen down the stairs. But oh no. She was able to evacuate but says it was pretty cold waiting for the gas leak to be turned off. The Questar employee was shaking his head looking at the tire tracks in the snow. When we asked Julia if she was upset the driver didn't have the courtesy to stay at the scene she shook her head too. Thankfully no one was injured.
