A MAN who crashed his car into a house at Waratah last month, terrifying the two occupants inside, has pleaded guilty to mid-range drink driving.  

Quintin Rosewarne, 20, of Fletcher, appeared in Newcastle Local Court on Thursday, where he admitted to driving his Mitsubishi Lancer with a blood alcohol reading of 0.095, according to court documents.

Rosewarne was heading west on Georgetown Road at Waratah about 2.50am on October 2, when he left the road and crashed through a fence and into a house on Harriet Street. 

The car stopped just short of hitting a bed where the two occupants, Michael MacLucas and Kirrily Spruce, were lying. 

The pair were uninjured but the unit sustained significant damage.

Rosewarne had his driver’s licence suspended on the spot, police said.
