POLICE, emergency services and Essential Energy work crews have rushed to an accident on Oliver Ave Goonellabah in which a white ute knocked over an electrical box and then crashed into the side of a nearby house.

Police were interviewing the female driver at the scene along with a male passenger. No one was injured although the driver appeared to be in shock.

A neighbour described hearing a 'a screaming and crunching noise' and racing out to see if anyone was injured.

She said after establishing that no one was hurt, she spoke to the driver who claimed she had lost control of the vehicle.

"I was just so grateful that nobody was hurt," the neighbour said.

Another neighbour said the unit which the ute crashed into was vacant, having only been sold three weeks ago.

Essential Energy staff and fire crews are currently in attendance along with police and ambulance.
