CHESTERFIELD, Va. — A car hit a home in the 8900 block of Providence Ridge Terrace, in Chesterfield, on Tuesday night.

A woman driving down Hicks Road, where it meets Reams Road, veered off into the Providence Ridge neighborhood.

She lost control and slammed into the house.

It knocked a six- foot portion of the house about a foot, to a foot and a half, off the foundation.

Neighbors said the woman backed up and then drove through backyards to the end of the street.

The family inside the house exited the house okay.

Police said the driver of the car suffered some sort of a medical emergency, but she is in stable condition.

A building inspector was on scene to examine the structure.
