Police crash ends in Flint mother's yard, destroys her four parked cars

FLINT (WJRT) - (07/28/15) - A car chase comes to a screeching halt in a Flint mother's yard, destroying her four cars.

She's demanding answers, but ABC12 is learning she might not get the ones she wants.

In May, Tremaine Brown rushed outside her home to find twisted metal covering her yard. She's been trying since then to get someone to cover the cost, but has gotten nowhere.

"It was a domino effect, boom, boom, boom," Brown said.

First, Brown woke up to the sound of crunching metal, then her car alarm started going off.

"I came outside and police are swarming from everywhere," Brown said.

She said the crash was bad, but it could have been worse. She said a large tree kept the destruction from spreading to her living room.

"I probably wouldn't be standing here right now because that very much could have been me," Brown said.

She and her four kids were OK, but her four cars were not.

"This van smashed into the other three cars. In five minutes, I have nothing," Brown said.

None of the cars are drivable, so since May, transportation has been a challenge.

"I'm just depending on people to get me through right now," she said.

She says she's been trying to get answers and help for two months, but feels like she's been forgotten.

"I didn't even get a knock to say 'sorry,'" Brown said.

Brown admits that none of the cars were insured, and Michigan's No Fault law keeps her from going after anyone else, but she thinks someone involved in the chase needs to step up.

"I don't think it's fair that I'm at home minding my business and this is brought to my home and now I have to pay for this," she said.
