 An accidental slip of the foot saw a woman crash her car into the bedroom of an occupied Pakenham home.
Police are investigating the incident which occurred in Main Street at 11.45pm on Tuesday 16 January.
Acting Sergeant Michelle Chiang of Pakenham police said the driver, a woman in her forties, was leaving the Pakenham Marketplace car park and had failed to see an oncoming vehicle while turning onto Main Street.
“Instead of breaking the driver accelerated across Main Street and through the (property’s) fence,” Acting Sergeant Chiang said.
The vehicle came to a stop inside the front bedroom, which was fortunately empty at the time.
“There were two elderly occupants home at the time, however no one was injured,” Acting Sergeant Chiang said.
The driver was tested for drugs and alcohol but returned a negative reading.
