Car drives through carport wall, overturns on hillside below
June 17, 2014, 05:00 AM

A Belmont woman escaped injury Sunday when she drove through her carport and down a hill.

An elderly Belmont woman escaped injury Sunday morning after she drove through the back wall of a carport and down a hill.

At approximately 10:05 a.m. Sunday, Belmont police and fire units responded to a report of a vehicle into a structure in the 1200 block of Chula Vista Drive. Upon arrival, emergency personnel found the driver, an 89-year-old woman who lives at the residence, already out of the overturned car. She was checked at the scene by Belmont Fire Department paramedics and found to be unhurt, according to police.

The woman was pulling into the carport of her home in the Belmont hills, when she apparently pressed the accelerator instead of the brake. The woman’s 2005 Subaru sedan struck a refrigerator that was against the back wall of the carport and both the refrigerator and the vehicle went through the wall, falling approximately 8 to 10 feet down the hillside below. The vehicle landed on its roof and the woman was able to crawl out of the car before emergency personnel arrived, according to police.

It took tow trucks approximately five hours to remove the vehicle, according to police.
