Flying Trampolines a Hazard in Windy Missouri Spring
BOLIVAR, Mo. (AP) - The high winds that accompany powerful spring storms in Missouri typically toss lots of debris around, everything from lawn furniture to tree limbs to trash cans.
Then there's the trampoline that a southwest Missouri woman says flew out of a neighbor's back yard and crash-landed on her car.Kara Rogers, of Bolivar, says the bill to fix her trunk is about $650, and she and the neighbor are at odds over paying it.
Rogers told KYTV trampoline owners should spend a little money for kits that anchor the big fabric disks to the ground. And Springfield insurance agent Bob Berke says that some companies impose surcharges or won't even write homeowner policies for people with trampolines.
Berke recommended that Rogers file a claim with her insurance company. He says it shouldn't affect her rates.
