BLOOMINGTON, Ill. Mar 5, 2007 (AP)— When Dee Riddle heard breaking glass inside her central Illinois home on Monday morning, she first thought a bathroom mirror had shattered. But what had broken was a bedroom window and what had caused it to break was an object that had fallen from space, scientists called in to investigate concluded.
The small metallic object found near the window was most likely a meteorite, said Robert "Skip" Nelson, a geology professor at Illinois State University.

Meterorites do have a large value also. So both those people are pretty lucky there. I would guess the damage they did will be far out priced by the value of the meterorites.
