Woman trapped after car crashes into La Jolla house

SAN DIEGO – At least one person was trapped inside a vehicle that hit a house in La Jolla Monday afternoon.

San Diego Fire-Rescue crew rescued a woman from a white Lexus that crashed into a house, according to San Diego fire official. The crashed happened at Ivanhoe Avenue East and Torrey Pines Road around 2:30 p.m.

Gretchen Hills, who has lived in the house since 1966, was cleaning in the back of the house when she heard the crash.

"I heard a big crash which is not unusual at this corner because there are a lot of crashes here," Hills said. "I walked out slowly to see if the crash happened at the intersection and there was a car in my front yard."


Hills said the car slammed into the chimney and her room, which were recently remodeled.

"It's pretty much ruined my house and the brand new fence," Hills said.

The woman inside the vehicle was pulled from the wreckage by San Diego Fire-Rescue team.

"She's okay and that's the most important thing. She has some cuts and said she had some chest pain," Hills told FOX 5. "I really think she's okay unless something internal happened."
