Both residents and operators of manufactured home communities will tell you that, if you’re around long enough, you may see anything.

That was the case this past weekend in the hometown of MHProNews, Lakeland, Florida.

According to The Ledger, a 19-year-old driver lost control of his vehicle while speeding on a state road, and crashed into an unoccupied manufactured home in Lakeland Harbor.

Officials from the Lakeland Fire Department say no one was at home at the time of the incident Sunday morning, and the driver was taken to Lakeland Regional Health Medical Center with minor injuries.
