Elderly woman, 92, rushed to hospital after BMW crashes through her front window

A 92-year-old woman has been hospitalised with serious injuries after a BMW crashed through the front window of her Manchester bungalow.

Startling images from the scene in Bolton show the black car embedded inside the home, exposing the interior to the frosty air.

The vehicle smashed a hole in the brick exterior of the house, seemingly taking an entire window with it in a shocking early morning incident that has seen one arrested, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Photos show a green railing outside the property badly damaged by the car, which cut a path through thick snow on the ground before hitting the house at approximately 5:15am.

It's understood the BMW smashed through the railings outside the pensioner's home early on Sunday morning before it smashed through her front window.

The force of the collision reportedly made the walls inside the building collapse, injuring the woman.

Police confirmed she was inside at the time – and suffered 'serious leg injuries'.

"She was taken to hospital where she remains in a serious condition," said a Greater Manchester Police spokesman.

A man has been arrested and is being questioned on suspicion of driving offences and assault, GMP added.

The horror smash happened at the approach to a mini-roundabout at Chew Moor Lane's junction with Bolton Road in Westhoughton, Bolton, at 5.15am.

Firefighters and North West Ambulance Service also attended the scene.
