MIRACULOUSLY, a man and woman walked away from this mangled MG sports convertible without serious injury after the car crashed through the garden wall of a house in Ravensdale.

The man, who is in his 20s, and a teenage girl with Autism survived relatively unscathed when the car in which they were travelling lost control at Blackgates, Ravensdale on Friday, April 29.

The car smashed through a low garden wall and narrowly missed the front door of the house. The two occupants of the car, who live locally, had a very lucky escape according to a member of the emergency services.

“It was compounded by the fact that the teenage girl in the vehicle had Autism and made it more difficult to deal with,” he said.

“The son of the person living in the house had a lucky escape too as he was in the front room watching TV and was about to leave,” he said.

“There was a lot of damage done to the front garden but thankfully everyone walked away from the crash.”
