A Mirrabooka family are lucky to be alive after a car tore through the living room of their home last night.

Bessy Belica, 52, moved from the couch and went into her bedroom just minutes before a Ford Falcon lost control and careened through the house in Cunningham Loop.

"We have been very lucky because I would have been dead," she said.

"I didn't know what was happening - the whole house shook. I was screaming."

On an ordinary night, Ms Belica's two sons and two grandsons would normally be home.

But last night her son Blair had taken his five year-old-son Artan, to the movies and his two-year-old son Valon to his uncle's house.

Ms Belica's other son Burin, 25, was at soccer training.

"If we were all home we would've been dead," she said.

Ms Belica did not know at first that her son Burin had gone to soccer. Panic set in because his bedroom, in the front part of the house, was obliterated by the car crash.

Her son Blair, 29, said it was a miracle they were not all home.

"That is where we play with the kids every night. I'm still shaken up because my kids would've been gone," he said.

The car crashed through the front of the Mirrabooka house.

After hearing the crash and then Ms Belica screaming, neighbours Taylor and John Jackson ran to the house.

After making sure Ms Belica was okay, the couple approached the driver of the vehicle.

"We were making sure the person in the car was alive and we wanted to make sure Bessy was okay," Mrs Jackson said.

"I spoke to the driver and he tried to look at me but didn't respond. The ambulance was on its way and I told him it would be okay."

The 29-year-old man behind the wheel of the car was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No one inside the house was injured.

The incident caused at least $100,000 damage to the house, which the family built 26 years ago.

"We can't live here at the moment - it's too unsafe," Ms Belica said.

The house, which was left without gas or power after the incident, is insured.

Police investigations into the incident continue.

Anyone with any information about the crash or who saw the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
