An 82-year-old Tampa driver suffered minor injuries this morning when he lost control of his car and drove into a house in Town N Country.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue responded to 8903 Shandwick Court around noon after Angus McArthur lost control of his 1999 Mercury at Waters Avenue and Redbraes Drive, left the roadway, went through a wooden privacy fence and struck the house.

McArthur received minor injuries and his wife, Cvarlotte McArthur, 86, was transported to a local hospital after the air bag deployed.

Officials say the crash caused about $5,000 in damage to the house and fence.
