Vale man injured after pickup crashes through fence at West Cedar Road home

Sheriff's deputies arrested Nathan Lewis, Vale, after he crashed his Ford Ranger into the front yard of Roy and Judith Obermeier June 27.

VALE – On Sunday night, Judith Obermeier wanted to find a good place in her yard to plant her sweet pea bloom.

Her husband, Roy, was eager to help.

“You find a spot you think is OK and I will dig the hole,” he told her.

Judith Obermeier chose as place near the front yard fence for the plant at their home at West Cedar Road and Graham Boulevard.

Her husband quickly dug the hole and she placed the sweet pea bloom in. Roy turned – his back to the front yard fence – and began to put dirt into the hole.

Then the world exploded.
