Rude awakening

Dunedin emergency services were called to Bay View Rd early this morning after a car crashed into a bedroom.

The Mercedes glanced off a power pole before crashing through the bedroom wall.

A police spokeswoman said they were called to the crash at 3.45am and inquiries were ongoing. 

A St John spokeswoman said one ambulance attended and treated two patients with minor injuries.
