A classic "Car Hits House" story

From the BBC:

An elderly woman has reversed a car through the front door of a house. She wedged the vehicle into the front of the property in a village near Devizes in Wiltshire on Tuesday morning.

Firefighters took two hours to rescue her and got her out from the back of the car. She was treated at the scene by the South Western Ambulance Service. A spokesman for Devizes Fire Station said it had been "tricky" to free the trapped driver. 

A building control officer had been requested to check the building.

Most of these are tragic and/or scary (where third parties are involved), this one has some comedic value and no third parties were affected.

Just wait until the house buildings insurance comes up for renewal.

Yes, but what was the house worth? We want proper reporting!

P, has she list her no claims bonus as well...?

B, the answer is, "a lot less".
