QUINCY (WGEM) -- A 78-year-old woman faces charges after her car crashed into a duplex in Quincy Tuesday.

A Quincy Police Department news release said police cited Sharon Harton for failure to reduce speed and unsafe backing on a roadway after the accident around 3:30 p.m. on Harrison Street and Destiny Court.

The crash report said Harton had just rear-ended a car at 24th and Harrison when she put her car in reverse, backing up through a yard, and into a deck at 1433 Destiny Ct West.

The car did not stop there, however. It continued through the yard and on to 1430 Destiny Ct. West where it crashed into the building and an electrical box.

Police said no one was hurt, but homeowners did have to call Ameren.
