Driver hurt as she ploughs car into her own home!
This was the dramatic scene after an unfortunate motorist managed to embed her car into the side of her own house.
The unusual accident happened in Candelaria after the driver, a 70-year-old woman, reportedly lost control of the vehicle.
Police, the Civil Guard, Tenerife firefighters and emergency medics all atten-ded.
The woman was trapped in the car but was still conscious and alert, despite suffering a number of inju-ries.
The fire crew from Santa Cruz released her and she was given first aid before being taken to hospital.
The car was embedded in the side wall of her house and went through to one of the rooms.
The emergency services had to cut through the ac-cess door to the garage and install a ramp before it could be lifted away by a crane.
They also inspected the premises to determine the extent of damage caused and to shore up the proper-ty.
The driver was taken to Candelaria hospital where her condition was described as not serious.
