On Monday morning, LeAnn Rimes — stepmother of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville’s two children — got a rather surprisingly wake up call when a 20-year-old drove his car into the country singer’s yard and through her fence.

Sources from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department say the driver — who had a suspended license — “took out a stop sign at an intersection” and “ran into a light pole” before plowing through Rimes’ fence. Authorities are still waiting on toxicology reports to prove whether the man driving was intoxicated.

A distressed, yet thankful, Rimes took to Twitter to explain the situation to fans:

“To address the accident that happened in front of our home this morning, everyone is ok and safe. However, if drunk driving was involved it is terribly sad”

“My family could have been seriously injured and any situation where someone is drinking and driving should not be taken lightly...”

What makes that statement all the more ironic is that Rimes and hubby Eddie Cibrian were tied to another drunk driving situation exactly a year ago, when Eddie’s ex and RHoBH star Brandi Glanville was charged with a DUI in October 2010.

Also ironic? Just last week, Rimes wrote on her blog that she wanted to raise Eddie’s kids in a “loving, safe and proper environment.” Maybe it’s time to install a guard rail!
