A family was lucky to escape uninjured after a P-plater crashed his car into their Mill Park home overnight.

MFB fire crews were called to the Lamina Avenue home just before 11pm last night.

On arrival crews found the car’s gas pipe and metre were totally severed, and gas throughout the house.

It’s believed the family had only left the room to go to bed 10 minutes before the crash.

Firefighters worked at the scene to reinforce the house’s window and frame. The house was extensively damaged.  MFB Acting Commander Geoff Hughes said it was lucky no one was hurt.

Victoria Police are investigating, but it’s believed speed, alcohol or drugs were not factors in the crash.
