We spoke with the homeowners Sarah and Dale Diedrich. They moved into the home in October and were recently married in November. They are both hearing impaired. They told us they did not hear the crash and were actually woken up by all of the flashing lights. They said they were shocked when they stepped outside and saw all of the damage to their garage and their two cars. They think at least one of those cars may be totaled. They say there is a lot of damage to the garage but the house itself is okay so they will be staying there tonight. The couple said they are just thankful no one was hurt.
