Police are appealing for witnesses who saw a black-and-white Subaru Liberty wagon crash in to a power pole at Beach Rd, Batehaven, at 8.45pm on Monday, July 8.
A Batemans Bay Police spokeswoman said it appeared the driver failed to turn left, the car mounted the kerb, crossed a foot path, collided with a wooden retaining wall and then crashed into a power pole.
She said the car's airbags opened.
"It's a relief no pedestrians were injured in this collision, it could have been a lot worse," the spokeswoman said.
She said the driver or occupants of the car had left the scene before police arrived.
Batemans Bay Police were keen to speak to the driver or occupants of the car.
"Police have concerns for the occupants and drivers' welfare considering the velocity and impact of the collision," the spokeswoman said.
"We're appealing for any witnesses or anyone who has dash-cam footage."
She said the vehicle was "distinctive" and painted black and white.
She said a man in his late teens to early twenties, tall and slim build, wearing a black hooded jumper and black pants at the time of the crash may be able to assist police with their enquiries.
Batemans Bay Fire and Rescue also attended the scene.
The car was towed from the area.
If anyone has information, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Batemans Bay Police on 4472 0099.
