A car that crashed into a house in Lichfield is set to be removed after an examination by a structural engineer.

A 23-year-old man inside the house was lucky to escape serious injury after the car ploughed into the house on the Tamworth Road just after 11pm last night (April 20).

A man and a woman from the silver Mitsubishi were taken to Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield with injuries which weren’t believed to be serious.

The road was closed for around an hour to enable emergency services to deal with the incident.

But the car was left in place overnight due to fears the chimney of the building could collapse following the impact if it was removed.

However a police spokesman has now said:

“The car is due to be removed from the scene later today after an examination by a council building inspector.

“Any witnesses are asked to ring Lichfield Police on 0300 123 4455, quoting incident number 807 of 20 April.”

A 32-year-old Lichfield woman was arrested on suspicion of driving while unfit through drink or drugs after the accident. She was released on police bail pending further inquiries.
