Mum shaken up af­ter late-night car smash

Sale & Altrincham Advertiser - - NEWS -

AMUM- OF-THREE has told of the shock­ing mo­ment a car smashed into her house as she got ready for bed.

Clemen­tine Ola, 60, said ‘the whole build­ing shook’ dur­ing the col­li­sion, in Withing­ton late at night.

The of­fend­ers’ car first hit Mrs Ola’s ve­hi­cle, which was parked on Has­sall Av­enue.

The force of the blow then shunted her car into her wall and front door.

The vic­tim, a nurse at Manch­ester Royal In­fir­mary, had ar­rived home from her shift at about 11.15pm on March 17 when she heard a loud bang.

A car, be­lieved to be a Toy­ota, had crashed into her Honda Jazz which in turn hit the house. Her car is now writ­ten off and her home is dam­aged.

Mrs Ola, who was at home with her youngest daugh­ter Timi, 23, said: “I had changed into my nightie when I heard a big bang and the whole house shook. I was scared, but peeked through the win­dow and saw a car and two men out­side.

“They had al­ready crashed into my car, which I think then pushed into a wall and tele­phone pole and my front door.

“The two men drove off in their car and I wasn’t able to write down the li­cence plate. Hope­fully some­one will ring po­lice and tell them who it was.”

Mrs Ola and her daugh­ter were not in­jured. She rang 999 and of­fi­cers are now search­ing for the two of­fend­ers. Po­lice will trawl CCTV from nearby streets.

It’s not known if the car was stolen but the vic­tim be­lieves it was a sil­ver Toy­ota.

A GMP spokesman con­firmed re­ports of a col­li­sion on Has­sall Av­enue had been re­ceived. The car was seen driv­ing away to­wards Rud­heath Av­enue.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555111.
