CCTV footage has shown the moment a driver lost control of their car and crashed straight through a fence and landed on top of a van.

The house they crashed into was in Burwood and residents have told 7News that they thought lightning had struck their house.

The female driver, aged in her 20s, was left trapped in the car while it was perched on top of the van and the MFB helped free her.

Residents of the house were left unharmed.
