A shed, a parked car, a stop sign and a trash dumpster were some of the items left badly damaged when an out-of-control SUV plowed off a road in Yeadon, Pa. overnight.

Police say that a woman in her 30s was likely driving through the Bucks County community at a high-rate of speed when she lost control of her SUV along Lansdowne Avenue, near Providence Road, and plowed onto the sidewalk, crashing into a family’s shed around 2:45 a.m.

After hitting the shed and sending its contents all over the lawn, the SUV continued down Lansdowne Avenue and struck a car parked outside the ManorCare Health Services -- Yeadon nursing home.

The driver then hit a dumpster -- pushing it 30 feet -- before driving, or going airborne, up a hill where her car overturned, ejecting her from the vehicle.

She was hospitalized in serious condition.
