Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - FRONT PAGE - Kate Field­ing

A MOTHER and her chil­dren had a lucky es­cape after a car slammed into their Australind house while they were home on Thurs­day.

The male driver of the Holden Com­modore al­legedly lost con­trol on La­tour Street about 4pm be­fore leav­ing the road, miss­ing a power pole, slam­ming into a box trailer and then a front room of the house.

The driver and the fam­ily home at the time were not in­jured in the in­ci­dent, but the house was sig­nif- icantly dam­aged. South West po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent and a 29-year-old Australind man has been charged. He will face Bun­bury Mag­is­trates Court at a later date over charges of dam­age and reck­less driv­ing.

The car was seized by po­lice.
