Woman left unhurt after van crashes into her Failsworth home

A woman was left in shock after a van ploughed through her front garden and crashed into her house.

The woman was sitting watching television at the time when the Ford Transit came through a set of barriers and a wall on Ashton Road East in Failsworth, before colliding into the porch at the back of her house on Elsinore Close.

Emergency services were called to the scene just after 9:30pm on Sunday, with both the woman and the van driver being left unharmed.

He was arrested by officers on suspicion of drunk driving.

According to the woman, she said that she “just heard a bang” while watching the television.

“We get a lot of bumps on this road so I thought it must be two cars that had crashed,” the woman said, “but then I ran into the porch and looked out and there was a van in my garden.

A police spokesman said: “We were called to Elsinore Close just at around 9:30pm after reports a van had been involved in a collision

“A man was arrested on suspicion of driving with excess alcohol.”

Claims against a drunken driver

Drunk driving is one of the most dangerous things a person could do when on the roads, because not only is it illegal, it can also result in a serious accident and even death. If you have been involved in an incident with a drunken driver then this could be a very painful and traumatic experience, which may require you to undergo a hospital treatment which can be both costly and time consuming. During this time you may be forced to miss out on work and therefore an income, so making a successful claim could be the best way of reclaiming your losses. In cases such as this, the most likely person who you would look to claim against would be the driver of the vehicle.
