A woman needed hospital treatment after a car passing her house in July Street in George Town smashed into a parked car, pushing the parked vehicle into the house.
The impact shook the house, causing a suitcase to fall off a shelf and hit the woman inside the house on her head as she slept, the property’s owner, Winnie Chong, told the Cayman Compass.
The incident happened around 4:22 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Police said the female driver of a blue Chevrolet Equinox lost control of her vehicle and struck a parked Honda Civic, shoving the parked vehicle into the house and causing damage to the home.
The female occupant of the house, as well as the driver, were transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital where they received treatment and were later released.
Ms. Chong pointed out where a small fence was smashed into pieces and a wooden beam supporting an overhang in the driveway was nearly split in two. The back bumper of the parked Honda Civic was ripped off, and the trunk and the back window of the vehicle were smashed.
The female driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI and careless driving.
She was later released on police bail.
