Four people were hospitalised yesterday after the car they were in left the road and hit a parked car, forcing it into a house near Lismore.

The crash happened about 6.45am on Sunday when a white Ford Falcon left Rous Road at Goonellabah.

Ambulance officers treated two women and a man  at the scene before they were taken to Lismore Base Hospital.

A second man allegedly left the scene before police arrived but later presented himself to the hospital where he’s being treated. It’s believed they are in their 20s and 30s.

Police said two people who were in the house at the time were shaken but not injured.

A man – sleeping in the garage when the crash occurred – had a narrow escape when the parked car was forced into the home’s front wall and garage door.

The house has sustained significant structural damage to the front lounge room and garage.

Police are now appealing for anyone who saw the crash – or the vehicle leading up to the impact – to contact Crash Investigators.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
