AN elderly driver walked away unharmed after her car crashed into a house in Bradninch.
Police and firefighters were called to the scene of the accident at Culver Close at around 9.45pm last night (October 21)..
Fire crews from Cullompton, Danes Castle and a heavy rescue vehicle from Middlemoor attended.
The driver became trapped inside her vehicle after colliding with the side of the property and crews released her using hydraulic cutting equipment, stabilisation equipment and small tools.
The casualty was taken to hospital by ambulance. No one inside the property was injured.
A spokesperson from Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The local woman, in her 80s, ended up in the car on its side some 15-20 feet from the road after leaving the road, travelling through trees and ended up with the car embedded into the ground on its side.
"She was miraculously unharmed but went to Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital for a check up, mainly because of her age. No police investigation is ongoing."
