A TERRIFIED Evesham woman has spoken of the moment she shot out of bed after hearing a ‘loud screech’ when a car crashed into parked cars outside her home.
Sylvia Haim, 20, along with her parents and brother were all asleep in their Fairfield Road home when they were woken up by the crash in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Police believe a black Seat Ibiza ploughed into a number of parked vehicles, including her mum’s Citroen C4 Cactus which pushed it into the house and damaged the brick work and left a dent in their front room wall.
“I heard a loud screech and then a crash,” Sylvia told the Observer.
“This woke me up and I immediately went to the window to see what had happened. I saw that the car had crashed into a lamppost and the hazards were flashing. I immediately checked to see if my family were alright after that.
“I’m used to hearing similar noises coming from the bypass in the distance, but when I heard the crash that’s what made me shoot up out of bed.
A blue Hyundai ix20, a grey Ford Fiesta, a white Ford Fiesta, a black Yamaha XJ and a black Harley Davidson were also damaged in the crash.
Sylvia added: “There’s a huge crack in the wall of our living room where my mum’s car was forced into it. The bricks have moved and there are cracks in the plaster.
“On top of that we’re paying for car repairs and maybe even a new car if my mum’s car is written off.”
West Mercia Police have launched a witness appeal following the crash. Anyone who saw the incident or the way in which the black Seat Ibiza was being driven prior to the crash is urged to come forward.
