Alleged drunk L-plater crashes through garden fence



An allegedly drunk L-plater has ploughed through a fence in Adelaide overnight.

The 19-year-old driver allegedly drove a Holden Commodore through a fence and front yard on Boyle Street in Prospect, stopping just before it crashed into the home.

Homeowner Shannon Behr said she heard the collision while she was showering just before midnight.

She ran out to investigate the "deafening bang" to find two men and a car in her front yard.

"It could have come through my window, I watched it all unfold," she told 9News.

"I got frightened, I didn't know if they were going to come into the house."

Her garden fence was destroyed in the collision.

"It's disgusting… really disgusting… people like us can't sleep at night because of it," she said.

The L-plater blew a blood alcohol reading of 0.133, police allege.

The car was towed from the scene, and the driver lost his license.

He is due to appear in court at a later date.
