The driver of a car that smashed into the wall of a four-year-old girl’s Sydney bedroom is on the run after fleeing the scene.

The Holden Commodore crashed through the wall of the bedroom on Lydham Avenue at Rockdale about 4.15am, police said, with video showing it wedged in the brick wall.

The girl escaped injury as she was sleeping at the opposite end of the bedroom, her mother told 9NEWS.

“About 4am this morning I heard a dreadful crash… I looked out the front door thinking that my car had been hit… that was OK, so I came round and had a look over the porch and I saw the boot of a dark car sticking out of the front of our house,” her mother Francesca said.

“[My daughter] was in the bedroom – thank God her bed is on the opposite [side], so it’s literally just came straight through the wardrobe into the bedroom, and thank God she’s OK.

“I think I’m still in shock.”

Francesca said she spoke to the driver of the car, who seemed “delirious”.

“He didn’t quite know where he was, I asked him for his licence… and he proceeded to light up a cigarette and then disappeared on us.”

Police launched a search for the man and called in the dog squad, but failed to him in the surrounding area.

They are investigating and have appealed for anyone with information about the crash to come forward.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

  • Thank God the girls bed was on the opposite site and the girl is Ok !!


  • Luckily the daughter was sleeping on the other side of the bedroom!
    They should be able to get that man, right? His car must be quite damaged, so surely there is someone out there able to help with the investigation.


  • I saw this on the news and it was a big accident,lucky the young girl is safe and not harmed.


  • I’m assuming it was a stolen car, and I hope Francesca can give police a good description of the man. I’m so glad her daughter was safe.
