Drunken Sophia Anderson, 21, crashes through elderly woman's home and asks, "Will this make my car insurance rate go up?"
A drunken Brooklyn woman talking on her cell phone crashed her Mercedes into a Long Island home Monday, smashing through the house and landing in the backyard, cops said.
Sophia Anderson, 21, failed to turn left or right when the road she was driving on in Huntington deadended at a T-intersection with another street, officials said.
She left a train of wreckage as she smashed through the modest house on Southdown Rd., missing the 90-year-old homeowner and her caretaker.
Anderson, treated and released at Huntington Hospital, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, police said.
She is expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
