A NEIGHBOUR has said it was fortunate nobody was killed after a car crashed into a family home at the weekend.

A 20-year-old man has been bailed pending further enquiries after a Ford Mondeo careered into a house in Alfred Street, Weston, at about 7pm on Saturday.

Katie Grady, aged 49, who lives next door to the crash site, said she felt like she was experiencing an earthquake.

She said: “I was worried at first, I didn’t know what to think.

“At first I thought it was thunder but I realised thunder wouldn’t make the building shake like it did. It sounded like an earthquake.”

Ms Grady said it was only good fortune that prevented her next door neighbours being seriously injured.

She said: “It was absolutely horrendous. Had it been a sunny day we could all of been out there, people could have been killed.”

The driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries but nobody else required medical treatment.

Police arrested the 20-year-old motorist on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to provide a specimen and driving without insurance.

An Avon and Somerset Constabulary spokesman denied claims that the accident occurred after a high speed chase.
