A New Zealand woman angry at her cheating husband crashed a car into the building where she thought her love rival lived, only to find she had targeted the wrong property.

The 25-year-old woman pleaded guilty in court to causing damage of almost NZ$43 000 (R254 000) to the property in the South Island town of Nelson, the Nelson Mail reported.

The newspaper reported that the woman, whose name was withheld, was driving with her husband in the town in June when she confronted him over text messages he had received from another woman.

She demanded he direct her to the woman's apartment complex and point out which property she lived in.

The furious wife then crashed her car through the gates of the apartment complex and accelerated into the garage of the flat where she thought the woman lived.

Her husband ran off while his wife waited for police to arrive, the newspaper reported. It said the man later told his wife she had crashed into the wrong property.

Prosecutors are seeking full payment for the damage inflicted by the woman, who will be sentenced on October 3, the report said. -Sapa-AFP

Nobody but yourself is responsible for anything you do. You have a choice and you make that choice.
