A CENTENARIAN ploughed into a garden fence on Cornwall Street, Swanborne yesterday afternoon.

A police spokesman said the 100-year-old female driver ran into the suburban fence just after 3pm, cutting her lip.

A St John Ambulance spokeswoman said elderly women then stumbled from the car and collapsed.

The crash caused minor damage to the car and fence.

She was taken at normal road speed by ambulance to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.

Police said they would pursue the incident and ask her to take a fitness to drive assessment.

In WA, people 80 years and older need to take an annual medical assessment to renew driver’s licences.
