Out-of-control truck barrels through backyard, injures NC couple
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — A Kannapolis couple is recovering in the hospital after a truck barreled through their backyard and slammed into them.
WSOC-TV reported that it happened on Rogers Lake Road in Kannapolis Saturday morning.
Officers said 97-year old Ralph Chapman, who lives on the road, backed out of his driveway in his pickup truck. Rather than backing onto the street, he kept going, running right through his neighbor’s fence, and slamming into Nick Schmidt and Brittany Schmidt, who were in their backyard.
