The Hyundai Santa Fe ended up hitting some bushes, a gutter and struck an aluminum awning before continuing and then hitting the back corner of a home on Bellhaven Court.

Roberts was conscious and alert when police arrived on scene and had been wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.

Police said that her passenger, Bianca Lehman, 93 year-old of Whiting, was also wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.

Roberts was brought to Jersey Shore University Medical Center for treatment and evaluation of apparent non-life-threatening injuries.

Lehman was transported to Community Medical Center for treatment and evaluation of apparent non-life-threatening injuries.

Nobody was inside the residences at the time of the collision.
