Two seniors rescued from van after crashing into house

Two elderly people trapped in a vehicle were rescued by Ottawa Fire Crews.

The two were driving in a van that crashed into a house on Steeple Chase Drive and Woodbridge Crescent.

Fire crews say the van collided with a spruce tree on the side lawn, and then slid into the house.

The van then flipped on its side and the two seniors, in their 80s, had to be pulled out through the windshield.

The call came in at around 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

Crews say both patients were conscious and talking at the time; Paramedics confirm the man and woman are in stable condition.

There was minimal damage to the house and no one in the home was injured.
