A mother was pinned under a car which rammed into her home in Adelaide's north eastern suburbs as her children watched on in the early hours of this morning.
Emergency services were called to Lyons Road, Windsor Gardens - just after 2am.
They freed the woman, aged 54, who had been sleeping on the lounge before the crash and stabilised the damage to her home.
Police say the diver,a 37-year-old Dernancourt man, failed to stop at a busy T-intersection and careened into a van, which then spun around.
The car then continued and crashed into the front lounge room of a house.
The woman was sleeping in the lounge room so as to be closer to an air-conditioner, on a hot Adelaide night.
She was pinned by the car for some time.
The driver was arrested and taken to hospital for blood tests.
The woman suffered minor injuries and the two children who were in the house at the time were not injured.
Witnesses said they heard a loud bang and were surprised the incident did not cause more extensive damage or injuries.
He remains under police guard and is expected to be charged shortly.
