BuzzSouthAfrica has confirmed reports about a Durban woman who crashed her ride through the roof of a house.
As learnt, the accident happened today at about 07h43 in Riverdene Drive, Newlands, KZN.
Netcare 911 paramedics and other services responded to the incident.
According to Netcare 911, the collision happened after the vehicle failed to stop at a T-junction. It subsequently crashed through a boundary wall and smashed through the roof of a house.
Netcare 911 specified that the exact detail to the cause of the incident will remain a subject for police comment. However, the emergency medical assistance provider related that their officers found “that the crumpled remains of the car had come to rest in a spare room of the house with the driver still trapped in the wreckage” when they arrived the scene.
“Three children were in the house at the time but fortunately were in the Main bedroom adjacent to the spare room,” added Netcare.
To free the forty-five-year-old Durban woman from the squeezed car, Netcare 911 rescue officer pulled off the roof of the car.
“Paramedics had to clamber over rubble with their equipment to get to the patient before she could be stabilised. After the patient was extricated from the vehicle, they transported her to a nearby hospital for the care that she required. Nobody else was injured in this accident,” stated Netcare 911.
