Alleged drunk driver smashes through wall and front yard of home

THE FRONT YARD of a Sydney home has been destroyed after an alleged drink driver careered through it just before midnight on Friday.

The 43-year-old, who allegedly blew 0.149, was behind the wheel of a sedan when he lost control on Lehn Road in East Hills at 11.45pm.

He smashed through a retaining wall and garden before hitting a car parked in the driveway.


Police say he failed a breath test at the scene before being arrested and taken to Bankstown Police Station.

He has been charged with mid-range drink driving and had his licence suspended to front court in November.
