JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A local home's fence was the only thing that protected it from an out-of-control car in Arlington Saturday night. But this wasn't the first time that property was hit.
Almost seven months ago to the day, another driver smashed through a bedroom killing JaNay Jackson, 17, as she slept.
Now, her parents along with many neighbors are wondering what can be done to keep things like this from happening.
"It's all over again. It's reliving what happened previously," said JaNay's father, Gerald Jackson.
It's a day the Jackson family can't wipe from their minds.
"August 28th," he said. "When someone plowed through my yard through my house and took the life of my daughter."
Janay Jackson was asleep in her bed when police say a man driving under the influence of drugs ran the stop sign at Kennerly Road crashing into her room. Saturday night, it almost happened again.
"I didn't expect to see the damage as much as it was. I didn't expect for this car to be in the yard."
Jackson tells Action News the driver has been arrested. But the damage can't be undone.
"For him to actually come up into the yard you know that was unnerving. That was unnerving."
He says despite losing his daughter, the city won't fix the problem. He was told the intersection is up to code. He says the only solution lies in drivers hands.
"What would have to happen is people change their attitudes and their attitudes would have to be changed to where they would have a respect and a regard for others lives as well as their own."
And Jackson says while this time no one was injured, the painful memory of the day he lost his little girl has come rushing back, after spending months trying to move forward.
"Physically were ok. Physically we are ok. This is definitely an emotional setback," he said.
The suspected driver, Ismet Sijamhodzic, 51, will be back in court in mid April for another pre-trial hearing.
