2/5/2012 – Car versus House
Kensington FRS called Belmont SES up for some assistance today for a Car Vs House. A Learner driver crashed into the front of a house in East Victoria Park this morning.
A police spokesman said the 47-year-old L-plater panicked and hit the accelerator instead of the brakes before smashing into the front of the house about 9am.
Marie Barnes, 80, said she was close to where the car crashed into the screen door.
“I had just got out of bed and was putting the phone back on the hook when the car arrived at the front door,” Mrs Barnes said. “It knocked down the front pillars, I’m insured but she’s not insured.”
Belmont SES assisted by propping the front patio and replacing roof tiles that had been dislodged on impact.
No one was injured in the accident.
