It's not your usual car versus house accident.

Frederick County sheriff's deputies got the call for a car accident in the 13000 block of Manor Drive this morning. When they arrived they found two houses heavily damaged by the same driver. 

According to police, Iwona Mielzynskalohn was allegedly driving under the influence when she crashed her car right through the front door of a residence.  After the crash, Mielzynskalohn backed her car out of the  home, drove through the front yard before hitting a parked car, police said.

Then, she continued to drive. After driving on to the neighbor's yard, she finally stopped -- because she hit the front of the neighbor's house. 

Both houses were heavily damaged.  The Frederick County building inspector was called to assess the damage. 

Miraculously, no one was hurt.

Deputies arrested Ms. Mielzynskalohn.  She's been charged with driving under the influence.
