Vehicle leaves trail of destruction in Orient Point

A MALE driver has caused extensive damage after losing control of his vehicle in Orient Point Saturday morning.

The man aged in his 70s was driving out of his driveway, in Otway Street, when he collided with a nearby fence.

It is believed the man fell from his vehicle leaving the car unattended.

The car then careered across the road and collided with a four-wheel-drive, pushing the parked car into a garage.

The car, still in motion, then drove through four fences across five properties before coming to a stop around 50 metres down the road.

The driver of the vehicle was treated for minor head lacerations and was taken to Shoalhaven Hospital.

This incident marks the third vehicle in three days to have careered into buildings in the Shoalhaven.

NSW Ambulance Nowra station officer Scott Styles said in the 18 years he as worked with the service he has never seen anything like the last three days.

“They say all things come in threes,” he said.

“Hopefully this is the end of it.”
