A Wednesday afternoon crash involved an SUV getting wedged between two homes, sent one woman to hospital according to one of the homeowners.
Regina Fire and Protective services were called to the 1200 block of Elphinstone Street just before 1 p.m.
According to Jason Viles, who’s front porch was destroyed by the vehicle along with his tree being damaged, said the woman a— who he estimated is in her early 50s — walked to the ambulance to be looked at by paramedics.
The ambulance left shortly after the crash with one person inside and the fire captain told 980 CJME the person’s injuries were “not serious.”
Viles said he was in his home at the time of the crash when he heard “a big loud bang.” He said he then rushed to the front door when he noticed something was missing.
“I opened the door when I saw (the porch missing) so then I ran around the other side cause I couldn’t get out the front door,” he said. That’s when Viles noticed the SUV stuck between his home and his neighbours to the north as he had to go the long way around his house.

Viles said the vehicle must of been going “a good force” as the large wooden planks were split in half. He said he just got the porch built last year.
“I’m just praying that there’s nothing wrong with the inside of (the home) because of the force of what went on — as you can see it’s quite the mess.”
As for the neighbours house, Viles said the damage looks extensive to the side of the home. He said police were door knocking; however, he believed they were both at work.
