A woman, who was visiting a relative in the street, said the speeding vehicle only just missed her and her four-year-old son.
She said: "Five seconds later and it would have been us. We had just pulled in our car and we saw a police car and another car come up the road. It went straight up and hit the fence.
"Because the road was so slippery, they couldn't stop. Had it been a brick wall, I dread to think what might have happened."
The woman, who declined to be named, said there had been a lot of children in the area in the moments leading up to crash.
She said: "There was one hell of a bang.
"Heaven forbid what might have happened if any of the kids had been coming down the alley from the park at the time.
A police spokeswoman said that two people had been arrested and questioned about a theft.
