Driver crashes through fence into a house before fleeing the scene
Police are searching for a driver who crashed into a parked truck, then ploughed through a fence into a neighbouring house in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Torn up grass on the berm, and piles of shattered timber from the fence mark the trail of destruction on Wither Rd, in the Blenheim suburb of Witherlea.
A police spokeswoman said police were called just after 5am after occupants of the house woke up to find their fence and veranda had been damaged.
"The car had left the scene. Police attended and conducted area enquiries and are investigating," she said.
The home-owner was unable to be reached for comment, however a man in a neighbouring property said the car also hit a truck parked outside his house.
It is understood the driver then careened through the fence before reversing back through the splintered timber and fleeing the scene.
