They say location is everything in real estate. For one Midwest City family, their location has brought cars crashing through their front windows twice within six months. Michael and Lindsay Bower survey the damage to their home at 532 N Key Blvd. By jim beckel, THE OKLAHOMAN"It's another car,” Michael Bower told his wife after investigating the loud bang that woke up the couple. "I could hardly believe it,” Lindsay Bower said. The family was still putting finishing touches on home repairs from the March 17 intrusion and had just hung new curtains Monday night in the living room, which was redecorated with the front end of a car hours later. Drivers were arrested on drunken driving complaints both times. It was about 5 a.m. Tuesday, Lindsay Bower, 25, said, when she and her husband were awakened by a loud bang that sounded like lightning hitting their house. She held their two dogs as Michael investigated. "He opened the door, looked at me with a straight face and said ‘it's another car,'” Lindsay Bower said. The Bower's home sits at a T intersection, where Indian Drive comes to a dead end and, after stopping, all but two vehicles in the last six months have turned left or right on Key Boulevard. Kerry Jackson, 21, of Midwest City was arrested on a drunken driving complaint Tuesday outside the home at 532 N Key Blvd. Jackson was taken to Midwest City jail. Her bail was set at $824. Police reported finding Jackson sitting outside the car; the front end of the vehicle was through the Bowers' living room window. "When it happened the first time we thought it was too crazy to happen again,” Lindsay Bower said. "Obviously, we were wrong.”
