First responders found a sedan up against the corner of the home, with its back tires resting in the driveway and the car’s front end up on the lawn, above a brick retaining wall. The home did not sustain any major damage.
The car, a 1998 BMW 740iL sedan, had first gone through a wooden fence at a neighboring home, over the lawn and then struck the brick wall before hitting the house.
The driver was turning right onto Ash Street from Forest Avenue when she went off the roadway and onto the collision course, police said.
Police say the driver, identified as 37-year-old Rachael Ann Leroux, of Brockton, was determined to have a warrant for her arrest.
Leroux, of 515 Warren Ave., Apt. 2, was arrested on the warrant and also issued a summons on multiple charges related to the crash, including a marked lanes violation, driving an uninsured motor vehicle, driving an unregistered motor vehicle, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and attaching license plates to a motor vehicle.
Leroux was scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Brockton District Court, but the result of the hearing wasn’t immediately available.
