Woman gets jolt when car barrels into her house

June 1, 2009

A Wauwatosa woman was knocked out of her chair Thursday evening when a car crashed into the corner of her home in the 11100 block of Maple Lane.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

A woman was changing lanes when she struck a curb. Her tire blew out, and she lost control of her car, jumped a curb and drove into the southwest corner of the house.

The impact of the crash forced the 35-year-old homeowner out of her seat, and she struck her foot on a coffee table. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The vehicle's driver and passenger were not hurt. The driver was cited for failing to control her vehicle.
