A trail of destruction By ANDREA O'NEIL A man escaped major injury when he lost control of his car and ploughed through four neighbouring front gardens in Warspite Ave last week. The crash happened about 8.30pm on August 17. The 38-year-old driver was taken away from the scene by ambulance staff, but suffered only minor injuries, Porirua con- stable Kathryn Groube said. She said alcohol was not a fac- tor in the crash, which was still under investigation. Fatigue or a medical episode could have caused the crash, she said. There were no passengers in the car. Resident John Lucas says he heard a crash from his lounge and found that the car had damaged fences and trees which separated his and four neighbours' homes. The car stopped its trail of destruction after reaching nearby Beauzami Cres. Mr Lucas' house was the only one damaged in the incident. His lounge wall was destroyed on the outside, and an interior wall was pushed into the room. It was lucky that a power main in the wall was not affect- ed by the crash, Mr Lucas said. Bright bunch: Atrocious weather did not stop Mungavin Kindergarten celebrating its bright new school shed on Friday. The Awatea St kindy threw a lunchtime party to mark the completion of the formerly dull grey shed, which the children spent two terms cleaning, priming, designing and painting. Inspiration for the revamp came from kindy visits to murals at Porirua railway station and on McKillop St. Former kindy pupil Mitchell McIlraith, now at Plimmerton School, designed the shed's artwork, which features stripes, windows, flowers and a dinosaur. Pictured are Kayla Wilson, Astin Hartle, Talia Vega, Kiah Kaulave and Mitchell McIlraith.
