3AW listener Jan told Tom Elliott he went to check the cameras at the back of his house after hearing a loud revving noise.
“I couldn’t believe what I was watching,” he said.
“A car, at huge speeds, enters the intersection, did a full 180 degree spin onto the median strip, facing the wrong way, it revs again and takes down a 15m tree.
“Before driving off, with smoke blazing from both tyres down to the rim.
“I couldn’t believe it was happening just outside my place.”
