A woman crashed her sport-utility vehicle into a Georgetown home on Thursday, injuring one.

Firefighters rushed to the two-story Avenue M residence near E. 59th Street after receiving a call about the crash at 2:15 pm, according to a Fire Department rep, who said paramedics rushed the injured victim to Kings County Hospital for treatment, but would not reveal the person’s identity.

Fire and Police Department reps also did not answer questions about the cause of the crash, how many firefighters came to the scene, or how long they remained there following the incident.

But our on-site photographer Steve Solomonson claimed more than 40 of New York’s Bravest arrived to survey the damage after the motorist drove her Jeep into the home’s living room.

The Police Department rep called the incident a “civil matter,” adding that “no crime was committed” and that cops made no arrests.
