SUV crashes into NSW house, narrow escape for sleeping woman

A 54-year-old woman is recovering from minor leg injuries after an out-of-control car smashed into the bedroom of her NSW home, pinning her to her bed.
The woman was in bed asleep when the SUV ploughed through the walls of her Bargo home about 11.40pm yesterday.

The impact left the mother-of-two trapped by her legs to her own bed.
The force was enough to push through into another room where a teenager was sleeping.
NSW Ambulance Inspector David Kynaston told 9News the blankets and the mattress helped cushion the impact of the crash.
“I hear two big bangs and I come look outside and we see the car in our neighbour’s house,” neighbour Max Lennox told 9News.
The driver of the car, a 46-year-old nurse who lives nearby, was also trapped in the incident.
She was on her way home from work and told emergency services she had swerved to avoid a kangaroo.
The nurse has been released from hospital without charge and is awaiting the results of a mandatory blood alcohol test.
“(They’re) extremely lucky, all my years in fire and rescue, it’s one of the most lucky escapes I’ve seen,” Fire and Rescue NSW’s Captain William Morris told 9News.
The resident was taken to hospital with a minor injury to her left leg.
The investigation is ongoing. Anybody with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
