A P-PLATER was taken to hospital on Friday night after he was involved in a single-car rollover.
The 19-year-old Ballarat man was driving south on Skipton Street near the intersection with Dawson Street South when he lost control and the car rolled into the front yard of a home.
Emergency services were called to the scene just after 11pm.
The driver was taken to the Ballarat Base Hospital with bruising and a laceration on the back of his hand.
Police attended the incident and said fencing was ripped from the ground beyond repair.
Police believe alcohol was a factor in the collision after a preliminary breath test returned a positive reading.
