Bed buried in rubble as car smashes into home
An inner southwest family were lucky to escape injuries after a car crashed through their front bedroom.
Just before 11am yesterday, a Toyota Camry smashed through the bedroom wall, with the front half of the car lodged inside the home on Amy St, Campsie.
The driver, a 53-year-old male relative of the family, was able to safely get out of the car and didn't report any injuries - he declined treatment from NSW Ambulance.
Police and NSW Fire and Rescue also rushed to the crash site where fireys from Campsie Station worked to stabilise the car and prevent further collapse.
They put in a call to the Hurstville Heavy Rescue team who arrived soon after to make sure the home was structurally safe.
The car crumbled the brick wall and also hit the front window, which thanks to safety bars installed didn't shatter on impact.
Luckily no one was inside the front bedroom when the car crashed through it, and none of the family were injured.
The bed, sheets and pillows were clearly visible from the street among the brick and rubble.
The adjoining wall was also damaged with large cracks lining the bedroom.
Police officer from Campsie Area Command breath tested the driver who returned a negative result.
