A nine-year-old girl was hurled to the floor when a stolen four-by-four crashed into a house in Middlesbrough last night.
It happened at a semi-detached home on Ingoldsby Road at around 7:20pm on Friday. The child was thrown across the room when the red Land Rover Freelander hit a sofa after smashing through the front window. She was uninjured but had to be treated for shock.
Police said the car had been reported as stolen and that two men were spotted running from the scene after the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101.
