18/07/2013 – Over Night Incident Mandurah

Car v House – Mandurah
A 21 year old Mandurah woman will face charges after the vehicle she was driving ploughed into a home on Wyeree Road in Mandurah about 12.30 this morning.  It will be alleged the woman was over the legal blood alcohol limit when the vehicle lost control, became airborne and then crossed to the incorrect side of the road and through the front entrance to the house.  The crash caused extensive structural damage to the home; however luckily no occupants were injured.  The woman was treated in hospital for minor injuries and her passengers escaped without injury.



SES Volunteers from the Mandurah SES Unit attended the scene to make safe and carryout temporary repairs.  SES Volunteers are routinely called out to incidents of vehicle impacts on houses and buildings.  SES Volunteers receive extensive training in
this type operation.

Training includes:

 

  • Hazard assessment
  • Isolation of utilities (electricity, Gas and water)
  • Emergency lighting
  • Mitigate structural damage
