The owners of a Canon City home that was badly damaged after a truck smashed through the side wall of the garage Monday afternoon are sounding off.
They say they're very lucky no one was badly hurt.
Thankfully, Gary Sanders and Crystal Barber weren't home at the time of the accident.
The damage extends from the garage and into a stairwell leading to the basement and through the living room where cracks are visible.
The couple says they aren't mad at the person who slammed into their house.
"It's just a mistake that happened and we'll see how the insurance companies handle it and go from there," says Sanders.
However, they are upset by how they found out about the accident -- through Facebook.
They say friends saw a post from the Fremont County Sheriff's Office and then told them about it. It has led to unwanted attention. Numerous people have driven by simply to stare at the mess.
The couple is choosing to look on the bright side and say there are people much worse off than them.
