Car Crashes Into House

Posted on Thu, Jan 25, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office has just issued a release that reads like an action movie, involving a white camaro crashing into a house, a mysterious black SUV, and a pistol-waving man.

It reads as follows:

A South-East Shelby County house was severely damaged this afternoon when a car crashed into it. Fortunately, no one was home at the time.

The driver of the car, Christopher Anderson, 26, lives in South-East Shelby County. The other passenger in the vehicle, Jeremiah McCoy, 20, also lives in the neighborhood.

It all started about 12:30 this afternoon when Anderson told Sheriff’s Detectives a black SUV started following his white Chevrolet Camaro as he drove east on Marsha Woods near Hacks Cross Road.

That’s when Anderson said someone in the SUV began shooting at his car. As the Camaro crossed Hacks Cross Road onto Glynnville Drive, Anderson lost control at the intersection of Glynnville Drive at Winding Hollow Way.

The Camaro jumped the curb and crashed into the front room of a house at 4286 Winding Hollow Way owned by Mr. and Mrs. Mickey Smith. They were not at home.

Neither Anderson nor McCoy was hurt in the crash.

Deputies are investigating whether the shots fired at Anderson’s car might be connected to another shooting call in the same neighborhood before the crash.

About noon, neighbors near the intersection of Hacks Cross at Marsha Woods reported hearing gunshots and saw a man wearing black clothes standing on the sidewalk at the intersection firing a pistol into the air. Deputies arrived a short time later but the man had left the area.

So far, no other persons have been arrested in connection with the shooting and car crash today.
