A driver has been found by police after hitting a phone box and the fence of a house in Hastings, before taking off from the scene.
A police spokeswoman said they were called to the scene of the single-car crash at the Fitzroy Ave and Grays Rd roundabout about 5.25am on Saturday.
The driver had left the scene by the time police arrived, but was later found by police at their home, uninjured.
The car remained embedded in the badly damaged fence and phone box, cordoned off by police tape on Saturday morning, attracting plenty of onlookers with its crumpled state.
