DENVER (CBS4) — A driver backed halfway into the kitchen of a garden-level apartment in Denver — just as a family was about to start making Christmas cookies. Photos tweeted by the Denver Fire Department show a Ford sedan with its trunk inside the the kitchen, its back tires on the counter tops.

The fire department said it happened early Wednesday morning in the 4600 block of High Street. No one was inside at the time.

The tweet said the family who lives in the apartment returned from a wake for their great grandmother and were going to make Christmas cookies — but finding a car in their kitchen “greatly changed their plans.”

“Denver Fire is helping them out as best we can. this Holiday Season!” fire officials said.

No one was hurt in the crash.

The driver, identified by police as a 21-year-old female, took off after the crash but then came back.

She was cited with three misdemeanor traffic violations — careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, and failing to report an accident. She was not arrested.
