TWO cars ploughed into homes in unrelated incidents in suburban Perth last night – one of the vehicles was allegedly stolen, while the other was being driven by an unaccompanied learner driver.

Police this morning a charged a man over the allegedly stolen vehicle.

Officers have accused a 38-year-old Maddington man of stealing a Holden Cruz sedan from a Thornlie home about 8.45pm before losing control on Crusader Drive and crashing the vehicle into a carport.

The car then careered through a fence and into the wall of a home on Regal Drive.

No one was injured in the crash.

Police charged the man with reckless driving, no authority to drive and providing false details.

He is due in Armadale Magistrates Court this morning.

In the other incident, a learner driver alone in a Suzuki hatch lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the side of a house on Bittern Way in Bennett Springs about 7pm.

Police said the vehicle was written off and caused “extensive damage” to the home.

No one was injured in the crash.

Officers are conducting inquiries.
