Another report said the car hit two bungalows and before the driver got out and fled.
Other reports said cables were left hanging down as a neighbour’s car got shunted into the neighbouring bungalow.
“It’s knocked all the plaster of the inside of the bungalow,” said one man.
One woman posted to Facebook that it was “bloody scary; to think they could have been in bed in those front bedrooms and the car going through the wall.”
Other residents felt let down by the county council for not going ahead with traffic calming measures down Norwood Road.
“That’s a straight piece of road with a 30 limit; requests have gone to council for traffic calming but been refused and now this,” said one resident.
