Leelanau Co. Woman Fights to Protect Home From Destructive Cars

Posted: Updated:

A Northern Michigan woman is fighting to keep people from crashing on her and her neighbor's property. 

Pat Alonzi's lives at a three way intersection near Glen Lake. 

Her home has been hit three times since December.

The most recent crash happened this month when a driver missed a stop sign, scraped her house, then went off a 12-foot retaining wall.

Alonzi's neighbor also had a close call when a car lost control and landed in her dining room earlier this year.

They want both Leelanau County and the Michigan Department of Transportation to step in.
