Actress Kim Cattrall is highlighting the issue of drinking and driving, days after tweeting pictures of an SUV she says plowed into her Courtenay, B.C., home on Tuesday.

In her tweets, the Sex and the City actress claims the driver was a 16-year-old who was joy riding when the crash occurred around 1 a.m. PT.

After receiving several concerned tweets from fans, Cattrall said she was "shaken up, but OK." 

She also tweeted at Mothers Against Drunk Driving about the incident, and retweeted several users critical of drinking and driving. Authorities have not confirmed whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.

In response to an interview request from CBC News, Cattrall referred the reporter to MADD and said she would continue to educate teens about "this reckless behavior."
