Toyota makes a house call on Mallard Street in Manchester
A Manchester woman who said she was trying to pull into a shared driveway on Mallard Street ends up flooring it across the neighbor's front lawn and into their house.
Police arrived to the Cedar Glen West home on Tuesday around 12:58 PM and spotted a 2014 Toyota Corolla resting against the brick façade of the single family residence.
The driver of the Toyota, 81-year-old Maria Piwowarczyk, initially stated that her brakes had failed, which caused her to lose control of the vehicle, however, an inspection of the vehicle revealed that the brakes appeared to be in proper working condition.
Piwowarczyk was not injured during the crash but was evaluated as a precaution at the scene by members of the Manchester Volunteer First Aid Squad.
She refused any additional medical treatment.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but at this point police say driver error appears to be a contributing factor.
