Queenstown residents whose garage was struck by an out-of-control car early yesterday in Highview Tce are relieved no-one was seriously injured.

A woman who lives in the house, who did not want to be identified, said she was thankful the crash occurred at 12.23am and not when children could have been out playing or pedestrians walking on the footpath.

Senior Constable Chris Blackford said a 20-year-old Queenstown man allegedly lost control on a bend in the road before crashing into a parked vehicle, rubbish bins and shrubbery before hitting the garage. No-one was injured in the crash.

Snr Const Blackford said speed could have been a factor and inquiries were continuing.
