Allegedly drunk driver ploughs car into bedroom of NSW home

A Sydney family has had a lucky escape after an allegedly drunk driver crashed his car into the bedroom of their home.

Emergency crews were called to the property on Baulkham Hills Road at Baulkham Hills around 11.00pm last night, following reports a car had crashed into a house.

Upon arrival, they found a white Toyota Hilux crashed into the front bedroom after losing control at a roundabout on Gooden Drive.


Police said the 37-year-old driver of the ute allegedly fled the scene, but was taken into custody a short time later after being found in the passenger seat of a second vehicle on Gooden Drive.

The man was arrested and taken to the local police station where he underwent a breath analysis and allegedly returned a reading of 0.150.

He was issued a Future Court Attendance Notice for drive with high-range PCA, negligent driving and failing to exchange details.

His licence was also suspended.

Thankfully there was no one in the bedroom at the time and no one was injured.
