A woman in her 70s was rushed to hospital after she attempted to reverse out of a unit complex and lost control, crashing into her neighbour’s property on Monday afternoon. About 2pm on Monday, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services sent two crews from Geraldton Fire and Rescue Service to assist a woman at a unit complex on Durlacher Street after she crashed into her neighbours property and was wedged between the brick wall. Crews spent about an hour assisting a woman in her 70s exit the vehicle as she could not get out from the driver’s side door. DFES confirmed the woman was not trapped in the vehicle, but it took time getting her out of the vehicle. The woman was placed on a stretcher and taken into the care of St John WA about 3pm. The front-door area of the home was damaged and a water pipe was burst. Neighbour Eric Scott said he was one of the first at the scene, turned the engine off and told the woman to remain where she was until emergency services arrived. “She came out with the car, but I think she went too far. I said to her stay there, she was trying to get out, I said stay there and I stopped the car from going,” he said. St John WA confirmed a woman in her 70s was conveyed to Geraldton Regional Hospital about 3.15pm.
