A 15-YEAR-old girl was "extremely lucky to be alive" after a freak accident in which a four-wheel drive driven by her mother ploughed through her bedroom wall at Toogoom.
Hervey Bay firefighter Dave Crisp said the teen was walking into her bedroom about 9am on Wednesday, the same time her mother was attempting to reverse the family's Pajero out of the garage.
"Something happened and the car went forward through the interior wall," he said.
"The 15-year-old was injured from the debris. She sustained injuries to her legs, including a suspected fracture.
"She was taken to hospital for treatment."
Mr Crisp said it was extremely lucky the girl, who was holidaying with family from Gympie, wasn't more seriously injured.
"It could've been much worse."
There were eight people in the house - four adults and four children.
"Her mother is extremely shaken."
Neighbour Jim Kavanagh heard the collision from his home six houses away.
"I went outside and saw my neighbour running past ... everyone running around everywhere."
The four-wheel was towed from the wall of Kingfisher Villa on Kingfisher Dr.
There was no other structural damage to the home.
