Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall says she has been left “shaken up” after a teenage driver crashed into her home while allegedly out joy riding.

Kim, who is best known for her role as Samantha Jones in the hit TV show, tweeted photographs of a white car crashed into the front of her house, smashing a door and windows, and interior damage to the building.

In response to a concerned reply to her message, she added: “We’re okay but shaken up. No one was hurt. That’s most important but we need 2 address this behaviour & educate teens.”

In another reply she said: “A 16 year old girl could have been responsible for 4 peoples deaths. She’s home free to drive around today!”

Talk show host Graham Norton was among the people to voice their concern and support.

The actress, who was born in Liverpool, lives in Vancouver Island, Canada.
