Out-of-Control SUV Plows Into Shed, Dumpster

Trail of destruction leaves debris strewn over multiple properties

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.

Police said toxicology tests would be done as part of their investigation.

The driver wasn’t identified.
