ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a car plowed into a house and seriously injured a Florida woman as she ate breakfast.

Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes said in a statement that 67-year-old Karin Gray was in her dining room around 9 a.m. Tuesday when the car, driven by 61-year-old Paerlie Searles, went off the road and crashed through a front wall.

Gray’s husband told troopers he was in the front yard and watched helplessly as the car hit the house.

WFTV reports rescue crews had to pull cabinets from walls and battle a water main break to free Gray, who was trapped beneath a table. She was hospitalized.

Montes says Searles had just dropped a child off at school and was returning home when the crash occurred. Charges are pending.
