Car crashes into home
A motor vehicle has crashed into a house on the corner of Ocean Beach Rd and Winifred Ave, Umina Beach, on Tuesday, May 24, causing an estimated $70,000 of damage.
"The vehicle became airborne, before coming to rest in the kitchen area of the house", said Brisbane Water Local Area Command police Inspector Col Woolsey.
Mr Daniel Greathead was cooking dinner in his kitchen when the vehicle crashed through the home at roughly 7pm, demolishing the adjoining patio on its way.
Police believe the car, driven by a 58-year-old man, was travelling along Veron Rd when it failed to stop at the Ocean Beach Rd intersection and careered through Mr Greathead's fence, colliding with the house.
The driver was taken to Gosford Hospital for treatment, and a blood sample was taken for analysis.
