Car runs into yard
Two elderly Roebourne residents received quite a shock in the early hours of last Saturday when a driver allegedly lost control and ran into their backyard. Roebourne police reported that around 3am, a 20-year-old man allegedly drove off a bush track and crashed into the fence surrounding the backyard of the house, located between Hampton and Sholl streets. The car did not collide with the house and its residents were unhurt. The driver has been charged with driving under the influence.
