A woman was ejected as her speeding car slammed through a Bucks County home’s living room, went airborne and landed on its roof in a neighboring yard Saturday morning, police said.
The crash left a gaping hole in the living room when the vehicle veered off Bristol Emilie Road and hit the two-story house near the intersection of Golden Ridge Drive in Bristol Township. The owner of the neighboring home told NBC10 the woman driving was ejected and landed on his front yard.
“There’s been a lot of accidents on this road lately. For the last couple of years there’s been a lot of accidents, actually,” he said, adding that speeding drivers use the street as a shortcut through Levittown and frequently wreck due to the winding roads.
Police said the woman was “severely” injured and taken to a hospital.
The crash left a large hole in the first home, through which family pictures could be seen against a wall. Though the homeowner was present at the time of the crash, he was uninjured, police said.
The man told NBC10 he had just renovated the home and was devastated by the damage.
