Man Who Crashed Car into a Clarksville Gas Station Drives Into a House

In a strange twist to a story we blogged about last month, WBIR-TV reported last week that the man involved in an accident that left a man in critical condition after he crashed into a gas station pump in July has crashed a second vehicle—this time into a house.

According to WBIR, on August 19, John Ward crashed a rented SUV into a house in North Clarksville. The station reported that at about 12:40 p.m., Clarksville Police reported to a house at 3201 Twelve Oaks Blvd., where a Ford SUV had left the road and crashed into a home.

“I’m just thankful nobody was home,” said Jason Corpio, the homeowner told WBIR. Corpio’s wife, Tamara, told WBIR that Ward was shaking and told her he was “sorry” following the accident.

The accident damaged the garage-area of the home, leaving the SUV protruding from a sidewall inside the garage. WBIR reported that Ward appeared to have lost control of the SUV, traveling through a neighborhood year before crashing into the Corpio home.

“I just want to know why he (Ward) is still on the road,” said Tamara told WBIR. “I think they should have done something after the first [accident]”.

Sgt. Charles Gill told WBIR that both vehicle accidents remain under investigation. In July, Ward drove his Lincoln MKZ into a gas pump at 715 S. Riverside Drive, causing an explosion that critically injured a man.
