Van crashes into kitchen in Northern Ireland home - 'horrific and could have killed' says MLA

A van has crashed through a Northern Ireland home and into its kitchen.

A woman aged in her 70s was treated for shock as well as minor cuts to her head and arm.

Police said a Citreon Berlingo van crashed through a wall of the Clare Road home in Waringstown just after 9pm on Sunday.

The driver fled the scene.

DUP MLA Carl Lockhart said the scene was "horrific".

"A lady who I know so well has been left totally shocked," she said.

"She is such a kind-hearted person and I know this will shock her to the core. We could very well this morning have been dealing with a loss of life.

"This has been very frightening and I would ask that people remember the lady in prayer."

Later police arrested a 27-year-old man. He remains in police custody.

Police are appealing for information.
