GRAYSON, Ga. (WXIA) -- George and Kathleen Williams came home from shopping
Wednesday to find out someone broke into their Grayson, Georgia house. It was obvious
from the moment they pulled into their driveway.
There was a pickup truck sticking out of their house.
"A little red pickup truck from across the street," George Williams said with a smile. "And it was driven by a 2-year-old."
The pickup truck belonged to his neighbor directly across the street.
Police said the neighbor was unloading something out of the back of the
truck while his 2-year-old son was in the cab.
"Just accidentally, the child was able to put the car in gear and it
rolled down at a fairly slow speed across the street," said Gwinnett
County Police Cpl. Jake Smith.
It was fast enough to go through an outside wall and two windows into
the Williams' basement. Williams said it broke a gas line and a water
"I just wanted to make sure everybody was alright," he said. "Nobody
was hurt and like I said, things can be fixed, people can't." The
2-year-old boy was not injured.
George and Kathleen Williams have lived in the home on Brocklin Drive
for 38 years and have never had a catastrophic incident, not even a
tree on the house, until this.
The neighbor across the street did not answer his door. If he's worried that George Williams would be upset, he's wrong.
"They didn't mean to do it," he said. "So it doesn't make any difference."
