Barry Moore was sitting in his lounge chair when a four-wheel drive crashed through his window on Wednesday morning.
Police, ambulance and Country Fire Authority crews were called to Andre St in the Green Palms Village about 10.20
Cobram police Constable Kylee Edis said the female driver, who lived across the road, had turned towards the Moore residence in preparing to stop and reverse into her driveway.
Const Edis said the sole occupant of the vehicle then hit the accelerator instead of the brake.
‘‘No injuries, but the driver is very shocked,’’ she said. ‘‘The most important thing is nobody was hurt because of it.’’
The window was smashed, verandah pillars pulled out and the home suffered some structural damage, but the vehicle appeared largely unscathed as it was towed.
Neither the female driver or Mr Moore, who was sitting inside next to the window, were seriously injured.
‘‘I’m a bit shaken up, but I’m all right. I’m just worried about her (the driver),’’ Mr Moore said.
‘‘I was sitting in the lounge room
A resident of the village for 18 months, Mr Moore said his wife had been at the other end of the home at the time of the incident.
