A MAN has been charged after a car crashed into a house in Bolton last Sunday injuring an elderly woman.

Michael Vose, 39, of Mount Pleasant Avenue, St Helens, was arrested on Sunday November 28 after a BWM hit a bungalow on Bolton Road, Westhoughton at around 5.15am.

A 92-year-old woman, who was inside the house, suffered serious leg injuries and was taken to hospital where she remains in a serious condition, while Vose has now been charged with section 47 assault, criminal damage and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: "Officers were called to Bolton Road, Westhoughton, just after 5:15am, to reports a car had been in collision with a house.

"A 92-year-old woman was inside the property at the time and suffered serious leg injuries.

"She was taken to hospital where she remains in a serious condition.

"A 39-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and assault.

"He also received hospital treatment for a head injury."

Emergency services, including police, Atherton and Hindley Fire and Rescue Service, an ambulance and the Technical Rescue Unit from Leigh all attended the scene on Bolton Road and White Horse Grove.

On arrival they found that the car had driven through a metal fence and through the brick wall and window at the front of the property.

Vose has been remanded into custody with a court date appearance to be set in due course.
