The vehicle struck a fence and caused damage to a front wall of the house.

At the time of the incident two young children were present; one of the children received cuts and bruises as a result of bricks, glass and debris hitting his legs.

The woman left the scene in the vehicle.

Police attended and conducted a patrol of the area, finding the vehicle at a Warnbro house.
