Four people were lucky to walk away without serious injury following a two-car collision in Sebastopol, in which a car narrowly avoided a house.
A witness told The Courier the collision occurred when a car travelling along Verdon Street entered the intersection at Rubicon Street, colliding with a car travelling along Rubicon Street, about 11.30am.
The car smashed through a fence and came to rest just metres from a house.
Witness John Lammers was driving along Rubicon Street when the collision occurred and said one of the cars was travelling at speed.
"Straight through, didn't look, didn't slow down," Mr Lammers said.
"If I was going one kilometre faster I would've been hit."
Mr Lammers said a male driver and female passenger were in the car travelling along Verdon Street which veered into a street sign and fence, narrowly missing a house.
An elderly woman and young girl, believed to be in the car travelling along Rubicon Street, appeared shocked but uninjured.
Paramedics arrived at the scene just before midday.
The crash follows a two-car collision that briefly closed Sturt Street this morning.
