PINELLAS PARK — A 90-year-old woman was injured Monday morning after a car slammed into her house, according to Pinellas Park police.

The incident took place on the 3600 block of 100th Place N around 10:10 a.m.

The driver, Wladyslawa Grabowich, 78, of 3605 100th Terrace N, just a short drive away, was headed south in her 1995 Mercury, police said, when a vehicle made a right turn in front of her, causing her to drive off the road.

Grabowich ended up driving her car right into the front wall of the home of Veronica Ritter. Police said Ritter was at home and was sitting on the opposite end of the wall when the car crashed into the house.

Ritter was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, police said.

The investigation is ongoing, but Pinellas Park police said Grabowich does not currently face any charges in connection with the crash.
