UPDATE: The driver of a car that went into a Corowa home on Friday night fled the scene at first and later returned a positive breath test.
Inspector Jy Brown, of Murray River Police District, said the 20-year-old man returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.171.
Driving a Holden Captiva registered in Victoria, the man failed to negotiate a turn, lost control of the vehicle and collided with the front bedroom of the Redlands Road house.
"A 21-year-old male passenger was left in the vehicle while the driver decamped," Inspector Brown said.
The driver, who was believed to live locally, did come back to the site and spoke to police, then underwent a breath test and a second test at Corowa Police Station.
Inspector Brown said the man was issued with a notice to appear in Corowa court on August 23, with his licence suspended until the court hearing.
It is the second time a car has gone into the house, with an earlier collision more than eight years ago.
EARLIER: No one was trapped or injured when a car ploughed into the front room of a Corowa home on Friday night.
Emergency services were called to the Redlands Road house about 10.50pm.
Fire and Rescue NSW Corowa station commander Lindsay Bush said the SUV had gone over a main road and through a set of bollards.
"It's at a T-intersection," he said.
"They've come down the road and gone straight across Redlands Road into the house.
"The house was occupied, but they weren't in that area.

"We set about putting in fire protection, isolating any electricity.
"Once the vehicle was removed we made sure the building was stable, set up a tarp over the damaged area and cordoned off a safety area so it was safe."
Police and ambulance also attended the scene, with the house being handed back to the owners about 1.20am.
"It's just lucky that no one was in that room," Mr Bush said.
"We urge everyone in these cold, icy conditions to drive to the road conditions."
