Car careers into East Bundaberg home

AFTER 50 years in her East Bundaberg home, Irene Lange thought her evenings were pretty predictable, that was, until a car came careering through her house.

Ms Lange, 83, was sitting in the back room of her Scotland St last night talking on the phone.

"The next thing I heard a bang like a bomb and I was too scared to look outside," Ms Lange said.

"The photo frames were shaking on the wall and the mirrors had smashed in the bathroom.

"But I was too scared to look outside, my son had just taken the dog for a walk and I though it might have been him (it hit)."

Next door, Ms Lange's neighbour and good friend Heather Walls had just sat down to eat dinner.

"The next thing we heard was a whopping big crunch," Ms Walls said.

She peered out the window and saw a white car had left Scotland St, gone through Ms Langes fence and careered through the lower story level of her hi-set Queenslander.

Ms Lange escaped uninjured but today reported to the NewsMail she was still very shaken by the incident.
