NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WLNE) -- Crews in New Bedford worked to remove a car that crashed into the front of a home on Park Avenue Thursday.

It happened around 1 p.m. this afternoon.

Police said a 69-year-old woman was driving when the gas pedal got stuck and she couldn't stop. 

She then hit another car and a fire hydrant before barreling into the home.

"It actually came in through the back and almost came through the front of the house. It was teetering. The fire department secured the vehicle, braced it up, had a hose line ready to go for the leaking gasoline, in case it ignited," District Chief Jeff Pothier told ABC 6.

A woman was inside the house when the car came crashing through.

She was not injured and the driver was taken to Rhode Island Hospital as a precaution.
