Vehicle crashes into Ancaster Avenue home, dangles over stairs
Minor injuries for two 'lucky' people inside
Ottawa firefighters rescued two people from a vehicle that drove into a house and nearly tumbled into its basement Friday afternoon.
Ottawa fire officials said they were called to a home on Ancaster Avenue in the west end around 4:40 p.m.
The vehicle had driven into the house and was hanging over the basement stairs with a collapsed wall on top of it, trapping two people inside.
Firefighters said they hooked chains onto the front and back of the vehicle, then used a winch to stabilize it.
The two people inside were brought out and handed over to paramedics, who said they were “lucky” to only suffer minor injuries.
