A western Sydney man has been sent to prison for at least six months after a drunken high-speed crash.

Michael Mills was more than four times the legal limit and travelling at 124 kilometres per hour along the Great Western Highway at Kingswood when he ploughed into a house.

The speed limit along that stretch of road is 60 kilometres per hour.

His own dashcam vision shows the 29-year-old side swipe a Toyota Camry as he attempts to pass it, before he appears to gain speed and then lose control, slamming into a Kingswood home just before 6pm on February 17 this year.

When police arrived Mills blew 0.224.
