A Massachusetts driver who crashed into the ancestral cottage of Abraham Lincoln claims she swerved to avoid a squirrel.

The woman, 19, was driving her 2014 Audi Q7 east on North Street in Hingham around 6:35 a.m. on July 15 when she drove off the road and into the 17th century home, the Hingham Police Department said in a press release.

'The driver said she swerved to avoid a squirrel in the road and drove off the right side of the road, over the sidewalk, and into the front of the house,' cops said.

Cops said the driver, who was not identified, was sitting on the sidewalk when they arrived.

The driver and the residents inside the home were not injured. The teen was ticketed for failing to stay within marked lanes.
