DENVER -- Krista Howard loves her neighborhood. Very private and peaceful, she says.
That was until a Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling southbound on Colorado Boulevard decided to make a left turn, right into her custom-made massive brick wall.
As soon as the giant hole was made, the perpetrator driving the Jeep fled the scene.
The incident was caught on tape by a Wellshire Golf Course surveillance camera, and the Grand Cherokee was traced to Athanasios Lemonidis, who lives down the street from Howard.
Lemonidis, has retained an attorney and is not talking to police, Howard or his insurance company, American Family.
Until Lemonidis decides to talk, everybody and everything is on hold.
It’s a wall tougher to penetrate than the one he allegedly plowed through with his Jeep.
The Denver Police Department is handcuffed. The insurance company says it can’t process the claim without talking to the insured.
The only other option for Howard is to contact her insurance company, but she’s not inclined to pay the big deductible and have her premiums raised.
