Police are hunting the driver of a car which crashed into the garden wall of a house.
The black Mitsubishi Warrior pick-up truck struck a parked Citroen then bounced into Michael Gilbert's driveway in St Helen's Road, Sheerness, demolishing his garden wall and narrowly missing his VW Golf.
Mr Gilbert said: "I was in the back garden, heard an almighty crash and as I came down the side of my house I could see my neighbour’s car smashed into the dividing wall between our properties.
"As I came to the front of my house there was a Mitsubishi pick-up in my garden. It had demolished the front wall of my garden and impaled itself on the metal gate post."
He added: "It could have been worse. The truck could have gone through our bay."
Instead, some of the force was taken by a green wheelie bin sitting on his drive. The bin was left all crumpled.
Mr Gilbert said the driver had "done a runner" before he arrived but had taken the Mitsubishi's car keys with him.
Mr Gilbert said: "I have no idea how this happened. It's a reasonably straight piece of road.
"I'm just so glad our car wasn't on the drive at the time, otherwise that would have been damaged, too."
The neighbour's Citroen was owned by John Cormack. His daughter Tiannie said: "We are in the middle of moving house so my dad was using the car to move stuff. He had just loaded it up and had gone inside when it was hit.
"The force pushed my dad's car into our neighbour's driveway and wrote the car off. All its side was stoved in.
The crash happened at 6.30pm on Sunday evening. The road was closed as emergency services made the vehicles safe and arranged for them to be taken away.
A police spokesman said: "We were called at around 6.30pm on Sunday to a report a car had collided with a stationary vehicle and a wall in St Helen’s Road, Sheerness.
"Officers and Kent Fire and Rescue Service attended. The driver had left prior to their arrival."
He added: "The vehicle was recovered and inquiries commenced to identify and locate the driver."
