When she went down to the street, she found one of the street lampposts had been knocked down and a number of parked vehicles damaged.
One car – a silver Toyota – had gone through the exterior wall of a property, she said, causing bricks to hit the house’s window.
She claimed to have seen a number of sports cars driving at speed on Roman Road in the past few days.
“[They] have been racing up the road for two or three days,” she said.
She added that dangerous driving in the neighbourhood was a longstanding issue and suggested measures be put in place to reduce drivers’ speed on Roman Road.
She said the crash site had already been cleared and the damaged lamppost taken away.
A LAS spokesperson confirmed it was called to reports of a collision on the road at 12:59am this morning.
They said: "We sent an ambulance crew and medic in a car to the scene. Our crews assessed three people, but they were not taken to hospital."
No arrests were made and there is no criminal investigation ongoing, but the police have asked anyone with information to call them on 101, quoting CAD 263/11Oct.
