A CAR has crashed into a house, rendering it so unstable the family has been evacuated.

At around 2.15pm today (Wednesday) a driver approaching the intersection between Sheffield Avenue and Melbourne Avenue collided with the end of terrace house.

Firefighters from Slough Fire Station attended the scene, and woman in her 70's was taken to hospital with chest pains. The damage to the house was so extensive the family was evacuated.

Late in the afternoon men were working to shore up the damaged house, as the occupant watched in distress.
