The car flew over the pool for about 40 to 50 feet in the air before landing in the home’s kitchen, according to a report
Miraculously, no one was injured when a Tesla crashed into a California home on Friday, police said.
Multiple officers responded to the scene at the intersection of Murphy and Ashwood Drive just after 7 a.m. local time in San Mateo, according to SFGATE.
“When the driver lost control of the vehicle, the car drove over a curb and through the driveway of a neighbors home, then through a fence that separated the two properties,” Jerami Surratt, a public information officer for the San Mateo Police Department, told PEOPLE in a statement. “The fence and back of the house is approximately 40 feet.”
According to SFGATE, the 70-year-old driver and her 40-year-old daughter’s Tesla flew over a swimming pool for about 40 to 50 feet in the air before landing in the home’s kitchen.
The driver and passenger of the car remained on scene and spoke to arriving officers, Surratt told PEOPLE in a statement. There has been no arrest and there is no evidence the driver was under the influence.
The mother and daughter, who have not been identified at this time, remained at the scene, per SFGATE and NBC affiliate KNTV. No one was home at the time of the incident.
Meredith Donato, the daughter of the home’s owner, told Fox affiliate KTVU that her sister got a security alarm system alert that “someone had broken into the house.”
Eventually, her sister learned that a Tesla had crashed into the kitchen of their mother’s house, KTVU reported. Surratt said “the kitchen is damaged and the rear wall of the house is damaged,” but he’s unsure “what other damage was done to the house during the collision.”
“If my mother was in the house, she would absolutely have been drinking her tea at 7 a.m. in the kitchen,” Donato told KTVU. “There’s obviously property damage, but at the end of the day, it’s just stuff.”
Donato’s sister, Doria Charlson, told KNTV, “I’ve lived here for almost 30 years and have had no cars flying into our backyard before. Overwhelmingly, our family is just really glad that no one got hurt, which is pretty miraculous if you saw the car behind me.”
“The back wall of the house is damaged,” Surratt added. “The fire department has red tagged the house to ensure an inspection is done prior to the residents re-entering the home.”
