“I want to put it up for sale and just move on, because I’m not comfortable here anymore,” she said through tears.
An estranged husband was spotted crashing a dump truck into his wife's home in South Los Angeles. He also slammed into parked cars on the street. Patricia Dunn and Ronald Dunn are going through a contentious divorce but Patricia was shocked to see how her husband was reacting to the situation. While the situation was already terrible with Ronald verbally abusing Patricia and the latter filing a restraining order against him earlier this month, she said she never saw him do anything this outrageous before. The 63-year-old said she now fears for her life.

Patricia told KABC, "A man under that kind of rage - who's to say what he might do?" She fears that he might be trying to really kill her.
The incident took place at around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, January 15, in the Westmont neighborhood of South Los Angeles. Ronald apparently came by the house three times. He first came in a Chevy Impala and crashed into the home while his wife was still inside. Later, he returned in a dump truck and crashed into the home again. After backing it up, the man rammed the vehicle into multiple cars parked along the street. He then came back in the Impala again.

"I was just trying to stay out of the way," Patricia said. "So I don't know if he was drunk or under the influence. I never experienced anything like this in my life," she added. The metal fence outside Patricia's home was bent to the ground. Large dents were created on the exterior of the home right outside her bedroom. Patricia was clearly shaken by the terrifying incident. Tears ran down her face as she explained why her husband would do something like this, "Because we are going through a divorce. And he is upset about the fact no contact. He's verbally abusive and I have nothing nice to say."

45 minutes after the 911 call, police arrived at the scene. “If they had been here a little bit earlier, all of this damage wouldn’t have happened because he came back three times, and they weren’t even here,” Patricia told KCAL. She plans to move out and stay away from her damaged home.
“I don’t even want this house anymore,” she said. “I want to put it up for sale and just move on because I’m not comfortable here anymore. I don’t know. He might come back. Who’s to say he’s not?" she continued. "He was trying to kill me. He really was,” she added.
