Since the 24 August 2011, I have been collecting Car vs House in Perth stories, this is the second one, the first one being in Tapping.
The original story is here
The roof of a carport collapsed onto a parked caravan and vehicle after another vehicle became airborne and crashed into a Gosnells home last night.
A 23-year-old man has been charged with driving with a blood alcohol level in excess of 0.08 after the Holden Commodore he was driving crashed into a house in Murchison Way in Gosnells.
At around 10.50pm, the driver allegedly failed to taken a right hand bend, causing the car to become airborne and striking the right side of the house.
The car struck the supporting brick pillars of the carport area and collapsed.
The driver attempted to run from the scene, but collapsed nearby due to minor injuries he received.
He was taken to Armadale Kelmscott Memorial Hospital .
The female owner of the house was home at the time, but in another part of the house and was uninjured.
The estimated damage to the house is around $120,000.
The driver is expected to face further charges.
Good to see the driver is going to have to face the consequences of his actions. Not only was he injured, but he will be charged. I hope the house and caravan were insured.
