Police are investigating whether a medical episode caused a 31-year-old Albury man to lose control of his utility vehicle and plunge into a Lavington home on Saturday.
Prior to the crash the vehicle collided with two cars parked along Griffith Road, a telephone pole and narrowly missed a pedestrian.
Albury Highway Patrol Acting Sergeant Nick Fahy said it was extremely lucky no one was seriously injured by the out-of-control car.
"The vehicle prior to colliding with the house had collided with two cars earlier along Griffith Road," he said.
"It crossed onto the wrong side of the road, glanced off a telephone pole and narrowly missed a pedestrian.
"It then travelled straight over a roundabout at the intersection of Griffith and Kemp Road and into the house."
Acting Sergeant Fahy said the house was examined and found to be unsafe. By Sunday, the side of the house had been boarded up.
No one in the house was injured and the male driver had a superficial wound to his hand.
