Victoria police are investigating two serious collisions over the past two weeks where a car crashed into a home. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in both crashes.
On September 30th at 3:30 a.m., police were dispatched to a home in the 1600-block of Hollywood Crescent after a Ford Focus had crashed through the side of the house and ended up in the living room.
The lone driver was transported to the hospital where he was released shortly after on a promise to appear with a future court date. Investigators believe that alcohol was a factor in the collision.
Two weeks later, on October 14th at 1:30 a.m., officers were called to a residence in 2700-block of Cook Street where a Ford Mustang had crashed into an unoccupied bedroom of the home.
The lone male driver was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police said the investigation is in the early stages, but alcohol and speeding are believed to be factors in the collision.
VicPD officers also removed a further six impaired drivers off our roads over the past weekend.
