Truck hits Beaverton house, driver flees  


Jan Tipton awoke around 2 a.m. Saturday to a loud noise and moments later learned someone drove into her Beaverton house, striking her bathroom.

“I was kind of foggy and then I heard water running,” Tipton said of the early morning encounter.

She then walked outside and saw the damage and then saw a man get out of a truck and run. Tipton then called 911 saying someone struck her house in a vehicle.

Gladwin County Sheriff deputies arrested a 20-year-old Beaverton man in connection with the incident. His name is being withheld pending his arraignment in 80th District Court.

The strike on the house bathroom caused flooding and she had to wait for the Beaverton Department of Public Works to shut off the main valve. The valve in the bathroom was too damaged to be turned off.

Fortunately, Tipton and her boyfriend, Michael Walter — who wasn’t home at the time — have two other bathrooms. The couple have lived in the house for three years and say they haven’t had any problems.

Walter said the truck driver allegedly drove west from a nearby house, jumped the curb, took out a bird feeder before ramming into his house. Tipton said the truck was lodged in between the house and garage and the tow truck driver was challenged in removing it.

“I can’t believe this happened,” said neighbor Candace Yardley while observing the damage. “I’m just glad they are OK.”
