The Camry re­mark­ably came to rest on its side in the door­way of Suc­cess Tax Pro­fes­sional’s South Perth’s of­fice.

The man es­caped through the sun­roof of the car and ran off be­fore be­ing cor­nered by po­lice a short time later on the South Perth fore­shore.

Both driv­ers re­ceived mi­nor in­juries and the cars and build­ings were dam­aged ex­ten­sively.
