One shaken local told Meath Live, 'It was a miracle no one was injured there are a lot of families living here with kids playing and running around at the time and luckily no one was injured.

'The first we all knew about it was when we heard a massive bang as the car smashed into the house.

'The driver was visibly injured but he put up a struggle when we tried to detain him but was outnumbered, he kicked off again when cops reached the scene and resisted arrest and caused damage to the Garda vehicle as they were arresting him'.
