LAYTON -- Zach Braegger has done all he can to repair his garage door after someone crashed their vehicle into it late Sunday night.
Braegger also performed some quick repair work to his own car, which was in the garage when the door came falling down. The impact from the moving vehicle pushed Braegger's car into several metal shelves and almost through a wall into the house.
Still, there is a lot more repair work that needs to be done. Even with insurance, Zach and his wife, Cassie, are going to have to pay for a lot of the damage.
"We're out money either way," he said. "It would be nice for whoever is responsible to step up."
Police have no new leads in the investigation, only that a vehicle crashed into the Braegger's garage, at 257 W. 1275 N., Sunday night at around 10:45 p.m. and then the same vehicle, police believe, hit another home less than three hours later.
Jon Talbot, who lives at 80 E. 1150 N., told police he was home sleeping when he heard the noise outside his home. He ran outside and saw that his garage door had been hit as well.
The two homes are less than a half mile away from each other.
"There's no relation and connection (between the victims)," said Lt. Jason Hinojosa. "Right now, we don't think they were targeted. There was no reason they were specifically targeted out."
Hinojosa estimated that there was between $1,000 and $1,500 damage done at each house.
Cassie Braegger said when she and her husband heard the noise, they initially thought their metal shelves in the garage had fallen down. They quickly went to check on the noise and were stunned at what they saw.
"We opened the door from the house into the garage and it took a few seconds to register," she said.
Their garage door had been pushed in so far that their car had slammed up against the metal shelves and into the wall that divides the garage from the house. The shelves had fallen on the car.
"If not for the shelves, our car would have come straight through into our home," Zach Braeeger said.
The Braeggers quickly ran outside and saw the tail lights of the vehicle driving away. Cassie Braegger described the vehicle to police as a dark SUV.
The vehicle left blue paint and tire tracks behind at both sites, causing investigators to connect the two incidents.
