A 17-year-old teen on his way to Mill Creek High School escaped serious injury after crashing his car through the privacy fence of a Hamilton Mill home on Jan. 23.

In an email to Dacula Patch, the property owner explained the teen was traveling on Jim Moore Road at approximately 6:30 a.m. and lost control of the vehicle. When the tires left the road, the teen over-corrected and flipped into the backyard of the home located in the 1200 block of Lamont Circle.

No one was injured, the property owner advised.

So glad the student wasn't hurt and that no other cars were involved. We're always talking to teens learning to drive that overcorrecting is one of the biggest mistakes that newer drivers make when they go off the road. I hope that this will be an opportunity for parents to talk with their teens about what to do if the car leaves the road, or what to do in other emergency situations. Planning is half the battle. I'm wondering if speed was a factor as well.

The accident report is not ready yet, so I do not have details other than what the homeowner provided.
