WALKER, LA (NBC33) — Early Saturday morning, Ashlyn Schroeder walked out of her home on Gaylord Road in Walker and found that sometime during the night, a car had driven through her front yard and crashed into her garage.
“Ms Schroeder told us that her family uses the garage as a game room,” Captain Sharp, Walker Police Department, said.. “Had the accident occurred earlier, someone could have been in the room when the car crashed through the wall and been badly injured.”
The incident occurred on Saturday, March 16 at roughly 6:40 a.m. When officers arrived, no one was in the vehicle, so they checked the registration information and went to the home of the owner, Michael Korkosz.
“Mr. Korkosz informed Officer Fouse that his son, Terry Korkosz, had earlier admitted to wrecking the vehicle, following which Terry Korkosz locked himself in his bedroom and refused to come out,” Captain Sharp explained. “Mr. Korkosz then showed Officer Fouse the door to the bedroom and told Officer Fouse to force entry if Terry Korkosz refused to come out.”
Terry Korkosz, 52, reportedly refused to open his bedroom door. Police were eventually forced to kick in the door. They then placed Korkosz under arrest and he allegedly confessed to the crash. He said it happened at roughly 2:00 .m.
Korkosz was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center on charges of Hit-and-Run Driving and Criminal Damage to Property. His bond was set at $5,500.
