Car finishes in front room of Riverstone Rise home

A DRIVER was unharmed after a car slid down an embankment into the front wall of a house at Riverstone Rise about 5pm on Wednesday.

David Winn, whose Clover Cres home was damaged in the accident, was shocked.

"There's a car parked in my front room, which is a bit of a surprise!" he said.

He was already planning to repair the wall.

"I've got a bit of plaster out the back though, she'll be right," he said.

"Nobody's hurt, that's the main thing."
