Elderly woman backs car into Boynton house

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A scary surprise for a family in Boynton Beach.

A family on Dalton Place, which is near Congress Avenue, was sitting in the kitchen at around 7 p.m. when a car drove into their garage.

Police said the driver was in her 70s, and that she was backing out of a parking space when her wheels got stuck and then gave way, sending her car at about 20 miles an hour into the house.

"Everything was shaking inside the house," said homeowner Felipe Soto. "The table, everything. So it was a big noise. And we just came outside and we see the car crashed into the wall. She was inside with me, so i knew that she was ok, but I was a little scared anyway."

Police said nobody was injured. The house will need to be repaired.
