A 55-year-old woman has died after a large goods vehicle ploughed into a house in Main Street, Fairlie, North Ayrshire.
This is an earlier picture of the house thought to have been hit by a lorry in Fairlie, North Ayrshire today.
Most of the row of houses is protected by a low wall, so the lorry must have left the road before the lamp post seen in the centre of the photo.
A spokeswoman from Strathclyde Fire and Rescue has confirmed two people were trapped in the property along with a pet dog. She said:
A photograph taken by a resident of Fairlie has taken this picture that appears to show the lorry on its side and partly embedded in the house.
A large section of the corner of the building appears to be missing.
The lorry driver involved in the accident has been taken to hospital, in addition to an elderly man who was hospitalised with a leg injury.
A statement from Strathclyde Fire and Rescue says the emergency services are attending the scene of the crash in "large numbers". The accident happened at 1:45pm this afternoon.
Firefighters managed to free the couple who were trapped inside the building, and the man is understood to have been taken to hospital with a leg injury.
