A car crashed into a house in Clevedon last night (Wednesday) killing a woman inside.

Significant damage was caused to the home in Yeolands Drive after the car hit the property at 8.27pm.

“Significant damage was caused to the property and tragically a woman inside has died.

“The woman’s family have been informed and are being provided with all the necessary support.
