RESIDENTS on a quiet Currambine street were awoken by a startling crash, caused by a reckless motorist, in the early hours of Friday morning.

Police are still searching for the driver after seizing methamphetamine from the vehicle, which contained three passengers.

Officers found the Hyundai had crashed into a tree and hit a parked BMW, propelling the German car into the garage of a home on Christchurch Terrace about 3.15am on October 16.

Police discovered the vehicle was a rental car believed taken without the hirer’s permission.

Senior Sergeant Craig Wanstall said patrol officers had earlier witnessed the car driving erratically but stopped pursuing it for safety reasons after it took off at high speed.

Nearby resident Jenni Hunter said she awoke to find police cars, an ambulance and the dog squad in her street.

She said a male occupant appeared intoxicated and was yelling “I can’t feel my arm, I’m going to be paralysed for life”.

But police said there were no serious injuries.

No charges have been laid.
