A car plowed through the wooden fence outside an Avenue N home after colliding with a truck on Feb. 4.

Both drivers paused at the four-way stop sign on E. 98th Street, but then they rammed into one another, sending a woman in her sports utility vehicle through the fence at about 12:45 pm, police said.

Emergency responders helped the woman out of her car and took her to Brookdale Hospital, officials said.

The two people in the truck refused medical attention, according to authorities.
