A woman lost control of her vehicle while she was eating and driving, according to police in New York.

Suffolk County police said that the woman, who was not identified crashed into a home after her dog jumped onto her lap while she was driving.

Luckily, nobody was seriously injured but the home sustained heavy damage.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded on Tuesday, at around 10:00 a.m.

The woman was driving her vehicle on Brower Avenue while a man and their dog were in the back.

The driver became hungry and started eating an egg sandwich.

The dog also wanted some of the food so it leaped from the back seat onto the woman’s lap.

As a result, the woman lost control of the vehicle and slammed into the wall of the home.

The home had been condemned many years ago and nobody was living in it at the time of the crash.

Photos of the scene showed one of the walls completely detached from the home.
