Man rudely awoken when car slams into house

A MAN has had his Sunday sleep-in disrupted when a car smashed into the front wall and garage of a home.

He was sleeping in the garage when the white Ford Falcon lost control on Rous Road at Goonellabah, near Lismore, about 6.45am on Sunday.

He was not injured. Two people who were also in the house at the time were shaken but not hurt.


However, two women and one man from the car were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics, before being taken to Lismore Base Hospital.

A second man allegedly left the scene before police arrived but has since presented himself to the hospital where he’s being treated.

The house suffered significant structural damage to the front lounge room and garage.

Police are now appealing for anyone who saw the crash – or the vehicle leading up to the impact – to contact Crash Investigators.
