Man seriously hurt as crash leaves car embedded in home


Recommended Posts

A man, believed to be in his twenties, is seriously ill in hospital after a car crashed and ended up embedded in a house in Suffolk.

Emergency services were called to Long Meadow Walk, Lowestoft, at about 01:45 GMT to find a red Audi TT had left the road and crashed into the home.

The driver was removed from the vehicle and taken to the James Paget Hospital with serious head injuries.

He has since been transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Three people were in the house at the time of the crash but no-one inside was injured.

Keith Shales, 66, who lives in nearby Cotmer Road, said: "When I got there and saw the car through the hole in the hedge I thought that looks serious.

'Launch pad'

"I've seen photos of cars going into people's houses before but from the pavement, through the bushes and the cars behind it - it was like a launch pad - it must have been for him to get that high.

"I reckon he must be about four feet off the ground, I've never seen anything like it.

"Structural engineers are on site to inspect the property and police said the occupants had left the house while safety inspections continued.

Sgt Bob Patterson, of Suffolk Police, said: "Collision investigators will be at the scene today as we try to ascertain exactly what has occurred.

"At this early stage we could not speculate as to what has caused the crash."

Oh crap. Ive never seen anything like that before. Looks as if its cleared the parked car. Maybe theres a road that runs along the house and its drove off. Horrible wake up alarm though.
