RANCHO BERNARDO, Calif. (KGTV) — Authorities say a woman crashed through the wall of a garage at a home in Rancho Bernardo after the brakes on her car went out Sunday morning.

The crash happened around 9:20 a.m. in the 15600 block of Caminito La Torre.

According to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, the owner of the single-story home told officials she was having brake problems with her car and slammed into a wall of her garage.

The crash impacted a bedroom and knocked over a water heater, causing a gas leak.

Officials say San Diego Gas & Electric crews stopped the leak and a city building inspector and a structural engineer were on the scene to determine whether the house was safe for the homeowner to enter.

The homeowner's daughter was taking care of her mother until she was allowed to go back home. No injuries have been reported.
