Man disqualified from driving until 2030 arrested after crashing into NSW home

A MAN disqualified from driving until 2030 has been arrested after he drove a car into the bedroom of a home at Newcastle overnight.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Russell Road and Royal Place in New Lambton about 11.00pm, after receiving reports a car had crashed into a house.

Miraculously, the resident of the home – a 73-year-old woman, escaped with only a minor injury.


The 27-year-old driver of the Holden Commodore station wagon was breath tested by police at the scene and returned a negative reading.

However, inquiries revealed he was disqualified from driving until 2030.

The man was arrested and charged with drive whilst disqualified and negligent driving.

He was refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court today.

Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.
