    An out-of-control car crashed through a fence into an Emerald Hills backyard Saturday afternoon, and the homeowner says this isn’t the first time this has happened in the area.

    Another car crashed through Jeremy Deady's lot in February. It happened while he was away. He didn't have any driver information, so he ended up paying out $1000 to his insurance.

    Deady, who lives on 60th Street with his wife and two kids, wasn't home at the time of the crash on the 30-mph street, but he says this is the fourth time a car has crashed at the intersection behind his home.

    “Lives are at risk. Someone's going to get hurt,” Deady tells NBC 7.

    His family had just finished swim lessons and were headed to an afternoon picnic when a Honda Civic lost control coming up the hill, swerved and plowed through his fence – near where his 5 and 3-year-old play.

    "I just think there needs to be a stop sign here," he says. "Because when they come up the hill, they can't see that there's a curb ahead at the top of the hill and I think a stop sign would help that out a lot."

    Deady tells NBC 7 his neighbors have started reaching out to local leaders, and he's thinking about starting a petition.
