A couple in Black Hill have got up to go to work this morning (Thursday) and found both of their cars trashed.

The man and woman heard a metallic 'bump' during heavy rain around 3am, but thought nothing of it.

When the man went to get in his car at 6am, he found the black sedan had no mirror and the driver’s side door couldn't be opened.

Their other car nearby – a green sedan - had damage to the back panels and also had to be towed. 

** Meanwhile, Ballarat firefighters were called to a report at 4.13am of a badly damaged car leaking fuel onto Humffray Street.

** Police say there were two reports of hit-run crashes at 2 locatons in Ballarat overnight. A car has been seized. 

It is unclear if the events are related.
