Two hurt as cars hit walls

An elderly woman and a 17-year-old learner-driver were taken to hospital after their cars crashed into walls in separate accidents in Bicton and Midland yesterday.

The 17-year-old Midland boy was driving a Holden Maloo utility along Great Northern Highway about 7am when he allegedly slammed the car into the wall of a home near Muriel Street.

He had minor injuries and was taken to Swan District Hospital for treatment.

His adult passenger escaped without injury.

It is alleged the 17-year-old also failed a breath test and is understood to have blown three times over the legal limit for a licensed driver.

A 76-year-old Bicton woman had to be freed from her car after she mistook the accelerator pedal for the brake and crashed into her villa about 12.20pm.

The woman was driving into her narrow driveway on First Street when she hit two retaining walls and rolled her car into her front room.
