AN 18-YEAR-OLD woman was left shaken after a car smashed through her fence crashing into a house on Avoca St, Bundaberg.
The car left the road and collided with a brick and metal framed fence leaving it destroyed.
Sandy Harvey said her daughter, Emily, was lucky she wasn't in the front yard at the time.
"We have rented the house for five years and never seen anything like it," she said.
"My daughter called me as I was at work and I rushed home - she was shaken a fair bit."
Ms Harvey said the driver was fortunate he didn't hit the power pole and only took out the letterbox.
"Lucky no-one was checking the mail at the time," Ms Harvey said.
"It just missed Emily's car and took out the letter box completely."
She said the owner of house had been advised and went to look at the damage caused.
The smashed brick fence lay scattered on the front lawn. She said it was lucky the sturdy fence was in place or the damage may have been far worse.
A Bundaberg police spokesman confirmed police received a call at about 9.15am just after the first day back-to- school morning rush.
"The 39-year-old driver was returning from an appointment. He was breath tested with a nil reading and had no significant injuries," he said.
"It was a white Holden Commodore sedan.
"It's little bit odd and it is unknown at this stage as to why the crash occurred."
He said the car also collected the street signs of Grimwood and Avoca Sts in the crash.
A Bundaberg Hospital spokesman said the man underwent medical assessment before being discharged afternoon.
