A three-month-old baby is lucky to be alive after a P-plater almost ploughed into her bedroom.
Amanda Ellis had put her daughter Luna to sleep in the front bedroom of her home in Elgin Ave at Christies Beach in Adelaide on Thursday when things took a scary turn.
About 11pm that night, a 19-year-old P-plater allegedly lost control of his vehicle and smashed into several parked cars, a brick wall and a fence before stopping metres outside Luna’s window.

‘(It) smashed all the front of the letter box and smashed our car,’ a shaken Ms Ellis told 7News.
‘I just can’t imagine what would’ve happened if he was a couple of metres that way,’ she said pointing to her daughter’s bedroom.
The driver was breath tested on the scene before he and his 17-year-old female passenger were taken to hospital for minor injuries.
A South Australia Police spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that the driver was reported for due care and will appear in court at a later date.
Ms Ellis stressed that drivers need to ‘think twice’ while on the roads as someone could have easily been injured or even killed.
‘You could take lives in a matter of moments.’
