Car smashes into couple's bedroom in Epsom
Monday 17 September 2012
A couple had a lucky escape after a speeding car was launched into their first-floor bedroom as they slept.
The silver Lexus came around a bend in Bridge Road, Epsom, mounted a parked Audi and flew into the side of the house, Surrey Police said.
The incident happened at 3am yesterday and punched a large hole in the brick house, causing considerable damage to the owner's bedroom and an en-suite bathroom.
The couple escaped unscathed, and three men who were travelling in the Lexus were taken to Epsom Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries.
A number of other cars were also damaged in the incident, and a postbox, road sign and fence were destroyed.
A structural engineer was called to assess the property as police investigated the cause of the accident.
