Five injured after car crashes into Cranbourne home
Five people are in hospital after a car crashed into a Cranbourne home on Monday morning.
The incident, which occurred just after 8am, saw a gold Toyota collide into a silver Toyota at the intersection of Barkly Street and Normanby Street.
A man, 26, and women, 39, who were driving the respective vehicles at the time, escaped with non-life-threatening injuries.
Three children who were on board the women’s car were also taken to hospital with non-serious injuries.
The force of the impact caused one of the cars to smash into a house while two occupants were in bed.
They were unharmed in the incident.
Senior Constable James Smith said the incident could have been a lot more serious.
“It could’ve been a lot worse,” he said.
“Had the car decided to give or struck the car in a different spot, we could’ve been look at a different set of circumstances.”
Engineers are on scene to assess the damage caused to the property.
