Car Smashes Straight Through House In Sydney's West

A woman has had a lucky escape after a car crashed straight through the garage of her home and into the backyard last night.

The silver Toyota veered off Jasper Road in Baulkham Hills at around 7pm on Thursday, first clipping a car parked in the driveway and pushing it into the front of the house before smashing into the garage.

Emergency crews worked to clear the wreckage from the garden after the incident, which is believed to have occurred after the driver suffered a "medical episode".

Unbelievably Shahzad Shahriari, who was home at the time, was uninjured.

"I thought it was an earthquake," she told 9News. "I didn't even think a car... could hit my car and go through the garage.

"I thought the roof was going to collapse straight into the house. I'm just panicked and shaken."

The driver has been taken to hospital and police are investigating further.
