The woman was driving a Honda SUV when it left the roadway at 7:46 p.m. No one inside the house was injured, but the force of the crash trapped the woman inside and emergency workers had to extricate her from the vehicle, police said. She was conscious when emergency workers arrived. The house sustained significant damage to the porch as well as damage to the foundation.
