He’s bored with bananas: 23 cars have already crashed into his house


Ray Minter moved into his new home on the east side of San Jose, California in 1964 as a young man, but a few years later his hellish journey that continues to this day began.

In the 1970s, the highway was built not far from the house, and the exit leads right to his house, so those who turn off the expressway at high speed end up in his yard, and even in his house.

23 different cars have already “crashed” into the man’s property, there have been particularly serious cases, there was a time when a car exploded in the living room just a few minutes after his father was sitting there, another time his niece was run over by someone, and another time a pickup fell into his garage, destroying and pushing his own car into the apartment.

“He came with 170, pushed my car and everything else into the apartment. I would say I was scared, but unfortunately, over the years, I’ve gotten used to them,” the man told the San José Spotlight about the 2016 incident.

There is something similar on the other side of the Atlantic:

In nearly half a century, three of his cars were smashed by people coming from the highway, not to mention the repair costs of the house. Over the years, Pinter spent more than HUF 12 million on the installation of protective fences and pillars, and although in some cases they provided protection, in other cases, if the cars arrived at an unfortunate angle, they did not help either. Although his house is in the middle of the crosshairs, others on Jackson Avenue have gone wrong and built similar “defense “systems”.

The man is understandably tired of the constant accidents, he contacted both the city and the state several times, but they usually pointed the finger at each other and tried to shift the responsibility. It seems that something can finally happen, because San José has applied for 40 million dollars to renovate and make the road safer, and if they win, they can settle the situation by 2026. We hope that Ray Pinter will not have to receive any more unexpected guests until then.
