PHOTOS: Homeowner shocked as car veers off road and crashes into her house


A family from Mitchells Plain is in shock after a car crashed through their fence and landed in their lounge on Sunday.

According to a Cape Times report, the crash happened at about 10:00 in Eastridge as lunch was being prepared.

A white Renault Laguna crashed through the newly-built perimeter wall and home owner Nicolette Cupido was grateful that her 9-year-old daughter was not in the lounge watching TV.

The driver fainted when police arrived, said Cupido.

She said that this was not the first time that a vehicle has crashed into her property and Cupido has called on the authorities to implement more effective traffic-calming measures in the area.

According to the Cape Times, traffic officers who responded to the incident left the area when gunshots were fired.
