A frightening scene in the Elmwood area Friday night after a car drove into a house in the 600 block of Talbot Avenue.
“All of a sudden I heard this huge boom and my whole house shook,” Tina Lussier, who lives across the street, said.
A neighbouring home was also hit in the crash.
Witnesses say they saw a woman in the car, which had an Ontario licence plate, flee the scene following the crash.
The city said one person from the vehicle was treated on scene and taken into police custody. The crash caused a minor natural gas leak which was quickly controlled.
Neighbours say a man lived in the house that was hit, but was not home at the time.
