An 81-year-old deaf woman drove into the side of a house while trying to park outside the Hawke's Bay Deaf Club.

The woman "accidentally accelerated" as she arrived at the club on Lee Rd Napier, about 12.40pm, Constable Wayne Stewart said.

The woman's car narrowly missed two parked cars, broke through two knee-high fences and slammed into the corner of a neighbouring house.

The woman did not appear to be hurt but was obviously shaken, Mr Stewart said. She had been taken to Taradale Medical Centre for a check-up.
