A 21-year-old man drove a silver Holden Cruze along Lake Avenue in Cringila, Wollongong, around 3:30 am when the car drove offroad and into a house, police said.

The car almost missed Ainsley Lennard, 24, and her daughter, Lila, who was sleeping in the bedroom at the time.

The car plowed into the house, exploded into flames, and flattened Mrs. Lennard's wall.

Mrs. Lennard said the sound was so loud that she thought she and her family were bombed when she woke up.

She looked around and saw right outside the house before she realized that after the incident her daughter was trapped under the rubble.

& # 39; I stood up and everything was on top of her. I just searched everything for her, & Mrs. Lennard told Nine news.

& # 39; I found her and I just dragged her out and just picked her up and she just looked at me. & # 39;

The 21-year-old driver and the 35-year-old passenger begged the family not to call the police, but they were already en route to the scene.

& # 39; They met me at the front door and said: & # 39; Please do not tell anyone, I will pay you everything you want & # 39; and I was just gone from my face, & # 39; said Mrs. Lennard.

Shortly after the car crashed into the house and awaiting emergency services, the engine compartment caught fire and began to spread to the house.

Neighbors, Tom and Vanessa David, tried to distinguish the fire until the emergency services arrived and put out the fire.

& # 39; We were in bed and we heard a loud popping sound for a while, & # 39; said David Illawarra Mercury.

& # 39; I ran over here, saw the car through it, and I thought someone was stuck in the car, so my wife ran inside and called three times zero. & # 39;

Mrs. Lennard was unharmed, but her two-year-old daughter suffered minor injuries.

The 21-year-old driver was tested for breath on the spot and returned a negative result, but was arrested and taken to Lake Illawarra police station.

He was charged with driving a disqualified driver's license, driving in a dangerous way and careless driving.

The driver received conditional bail and is due to the local court of Port Kembla on September 25.

The 35-year-old passenger was not injured in the crash, but investigations continue to determine the events prior to the incident.

Mrs. Lennard had bought the house with her husband Guy in 2017, but since asbestos is found after the crash, they are unlikely to be able to return.

A GoFundMe page has since been set up by a friend of the Lennards, to help the family get back on their feet.
