Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall was left 'shaken up' after a 16-year-old girl crashed a vehicle into the actresses home, while allegedly joyriding. A white SUV smashed into the front of her house on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, around 1am on Tuesday (23 February).

The actress tweeted photographs of the scene, which showed the 59-year-old's front door and windows smashed by the impact of the vehicle, while the building also suffered interior damage.

Clearly outraged by the incident the Sex and the City star wrote alongside the images: "A senseless 16 yr old driver plowed into my home Joy Riding @ 1am. People cld have been killed. U should b ashamed" (sic).

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."

"A 16 year old girl could have been responsible for 4 peoples deaths. She's home free to drive around today (sic)," she added, clearly incensed. "This young girl could have killed herself, her friends, and me. Frightening..."

Social media users sent messages of support to the actress, who suggested the driver of the vehicle, believed to be a Suzuki Vitara, may have been drunk. Friends of the star also sent imessages expressing their concern. Chat show host Graham Norton wrote: "WTF!!! That's nuts. So glad you are OK. G xx." She replied: "The only creature I thought was dangerous here were bears," before adding "shaken up!!!"

Others blamed the teenager's parents for allowing a 16-year-old to go out on a drink-fueled rampage, writing: "16 years old... the car is a weapon. Parents!"

Kim, who is best known for playing Samantha Jones in the popular TV series Sex and the City, splits her time between New York, London and Toronto and is believed to have bought the house in Vancouver in the last couple of years.

Comox Valley police told The Independent they were investigating a crash, but would not confirm the owner of the property or driver's age.
