Woman in custody after crashing car into Oshawa home

Charges are pending as Durham Regional Police continue their investigation.

A 25-year-old female from Whitby has been taken into custody after a messy crash.

According to Durham Regional Police, a woman crashed a Pontiac Sunfire into a home on Bloor Street W just after 1:15 a.m. on Friday. The car hit a gas line, which started a fire.

“The house was starting to go up in flames…our officers got there quickly and were able to evacuate everyone, but realized the driver had taken off,” said Dave Selby, spokesperson for the Durham Regional Police.

“There was substantial damage to the house that was hit,” he added.

After police spoke to witnesses, they received a description of the driver and then found her walking around downtown Oshawa.

Charges are pending and the investigation is ongoing.
