Car Ploughs Into Bedroom While Newcastle Couple Were Asleep

Incredibly no one was injured..

A Waratah couple are lucky to be alive after an alleged drunk driver crashed his car into their bedroom early this morning.

The Mitsubishi Lancer left Georgetown Road at around 2:50am, crashed through a fence, into a parked car and through the front wall of the unit in Harriet Street.

The car came to a stop just short of the couple who were asleep in their bed.

The unit suffered significant damage.

The 20 year old male driver was arrested and allegedly blew 0.180.

He's been charged with mid-range drink driving.
