A woman was airlifted to hospital after the car she was driving lost control before coming to a rest in the front window of a nearby resident’s home in Mt Dandenong today.

The 70-year-old woman was trapped inside her vehicle, which lost control on Ridge Road just after 10am on Wednesday 10 February.

The CFA were notified at 10.17am to reports of a car accident, and on arrival crews from Monbulk, Olinda and Kalorama found the vehicle upside down with the driver inside.

Crews worked to remove the woman from the wreck before she was airlifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said the woman suffered upper and lower body injuries.

A spokesperson from Monbulk Police said the driver was conscious and talking to crews throughout the rescue.
