No One Hurt as Elderly Woman’s Car Plows Into Home in Stafford Township
Luck was available all around as no one was injured when a car ran into a house in Stafford Township Wednesday afternoon.
Stafford Township Police say a car driven by Julia Elmowsky, 86, of Suffern, NY ran into the house in the Perry's Lake section of the township.
According to police, Elmowsky "was driving a Ford Escape on Oak Ridge Lane when she put the vehicle in reverse. The driver believed she was applying the vehicle brake, however accidentally pressed the accelerator." This caused the car to run into a house.
The home was occupied at the time, but no one was injured. Police say Elmoskly was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
