‘Without you guys’ intervention, I would still have a hole in my house’: Blissfield man’s home finally fixed after freak accident

‘Without you guys’ intervention, I would still have a hole in my house’: Blissfield man’s home finally fixed after freak accident

The large hole needed repairs for several months and it became so cold that the homeowners had to seal off the entire second floor. But thanks to WTOL 11, they finally have a solution.

BLISFIELD, MI – In July, a viewer in Blissfield sent WTOL 11 some horrific photos of a set of semi-trailer tires smashed into the second floor of his home. The double frames destroyed a room and left a gaping hole where a window once was.

It was a freak accident that homeowner Michael Alexander said was caused by the nearby interstate. Tires flew off a passing semi-truck, struck a tree in Alexanderplatz, then shot upward and crashed through a second-floor window.

After this happened, Alexander thought that this would be a relatively quick solution. But he told WTOL 11 that months ago, his insurance company, Homesite Insurance, started dodging his calls, forcing him to hang a tarp out of a window instead.

When WTOL 11 last went to his house in November, the entire wall had to be covered with a blanket and taped shut, blocking out the cold winter breeze.

Alexander and his wife had to get out of their bedroom and into the living room because it was too cold to handle.


When Alexander told WTOL 11 about the unresolved situation, we called his personal insurance agent at Homesite and although they did not answer him, the voicemail was apparently received.

Alexander said that just two days after WTOL 11 contacted his insurance company, they called him back and apologized for taking so long to get back to him and promised to fix it right away.

Although they didn’t get to the scheduled repairs until February, Alexander said it was a relief just to see the repairs at all.

“It’s amazing that you guys helped, really. It was going to continue, there’s no doubt in my mind. I mean, really, there’s no doubt in my mind. I wasn’t getting any respect. I wasn’t getting any callbacks.” “If it wasn’t for you guys’ intervention, I would still have a hole in my house,” Alexander said.

Now Alexander said he is very happy to have full use of his home again, and he hopes his home won’t have any more freak accidents.

Meanwhile, the Lenawee County Sheriff said the driver of the truck responsible for the damage has not been located.
