A male driver reportedly ploughed his vehicle into a parked car in a driveway, forcing the car through the garage of the property.


Queensland Police have confirmed that the damage isn’t structural.

Witnesses say the male driver was taken taken away from the scene, because he was under the influence.

It’s understood no one was in the parked car at the time of the incident, though the owner of the car was the one to report the incident to authorities.

Queensland Ambulance says no one was taken to hospital as a result of the incident.
