Elderly driver crashes into four homes

‘A girl, aged three, was almost killed when an elderly man crashed his car into her Adelaide home and three other houses.

The driver, aged in his mid-70s, drove straight into a house on the corner of Nikoloff Crt and Shelley Ave at Fulham Gardens about 5.30pm yesterday.

His Daewoo Leganza hit the garage door with such force it pushed the property owner’s vehicle through another wall and into their loungeroom.

The driver then reversed and crashed into another house, severely damaging the front wall, garage, and another car.

Shocked residents ran out to survey the damage and were horrified to see the man still driving. They said he swerved along Baka Ave before jumping the kerb and smashing into the front porch of another residence on Lindsay St.’
