UPDATE: A crash between a school bus and a small car missed a family's home by only feet, landing in their backyard.  
The woman who lives in that home says her first thought was that she hoped it wasn't a bus-load of injured students. Her second thought was "not again."
"The last two times, they actually put more cement reinforcements in it to prevent this from happening again," says Dani Suess.  
Suess and her husband say a car has come crashing through their family's backyard on the corner of Ann Road and Durango Drive three times in the past six months.  
"They have to do something to make this intersection safer," says Jim Suess.  
Jim Suess says the city has been working on a proposal for the intersection. He hopes they'll put in concrete barriers or change the light pattern.  
"The kids are terrified to play out here, and every time we let the dogs out, we don't know what could be coming through," says Dani Suess.
