    A woman crashed a pickup truck into a Livermore home's backyard. She was not injured.

    A woman managed to avoid injury after she drove off the road, through a ditch, a ravine and into a Livermore home's backyard Friday, police said.

    Around 8:51 a.m. police were called about a Silver Dodge pickup truck that had rolled over on eastbound Concannon Boulevard near San Vicente Drive, Livermore police Officer Traci Rebiejo said.

    The crash happened after a 49-year-old woman suddenly floored it while driving on Concannon Boulevard and crossed all lanes of traffic.

    She went off the road into a ditch, through a small ravine and smashed into a backyard fence where the truck rolled over and struck a large outdoor fireplace, Rebiejo said.

    Rebiejo said no one was home at the time of the crash. The woman was trapped in the vehicle, but after emergency crews responded and cut her out she was pulled out unharmed.

    She was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, Rebiejo said.

    At the hospital it was revealed the woman had a medical issue that had caused her to drive off the road, Rebiejo said.

    Her car was totaled. The left-side tires had been torn off in the accident.

    Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the solo-vehicle accident, Rebiejo said.
