STRATFORD - Police in Stratford say a car drove into a home on Oronoque Lane Friday night.

According to homeowner Bob Rolleri, a vehicle crossed the street and drove across his entire lawn before hitting the house. The car stopped only a couple of inches from the gas line. He was watching a movie with his wife at the time.

Rolleri says this is the third time that a driver has collided with his property.

The property sustained about $10,000 worth of damage, which Rolleri says will take months to fully repair.
