AN out-of-control car smashed through the fence of a Rosebud property last Sunday night, rolling multiple times across the length of the garden before smashing into a parked car and landing just metres from the front of the house.
The Holden sedan, believed to be travelling in excess of 100km/h, failed to negotiate a bend on Elizabeth Drive near the corner of Rosebud Ave shortly after 8pm.
The car narrowly missed a power pole after leaving the road and becoming airborne, before crashing through the property on the opposite side of the road.
The impact sent fence palings flying and destroyed a number of fruit trees as the vehicle tumbled more than 30 metres, coming to rest on its wheels just short of the brick home’s front door.
Homeowners Coral and Blair Miller had been enjoying a quiet Sunday evening with their children before the sound of the crash sent them scurrying outside to survey the destruction.
Police said the driver, who was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, is likely to face a range of charges.
