TAMPA — A car crashed into the living room of an Egypt Lakes home Tuesday, striking the sofa on which a 73-year-old woman was sitting, authorities said.
The woman was taken to a hospital, but was released.
The chain of events involving three cars happened just before 7:30 a.m., according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, which gave this account:
Alejandro Giraldo, 37, drove a Mitsubishi Galant out of the Carlton Arms Apartments and into the path of a Nissan Altima driven by Anderia Lafond, 29.
Lafond's Altima struck the Galant, then collided with a Toyota Camry parked in front of a home in the 7000 block of N Himes Avenue before crashing into the house. The car hit the sofa where Minerva Pagan-Rios was sitting.
She and Lafond were released Tuesday from a hospital.
Giraldo, who was not injured, was cited for not having proof of insurance and violation of right-of-way, authorities said.
