Just seen this on the local news programme, looks pretty bad!

Hope guy ok but must have been going a fair speed to launch over two cars and get that far through a house!

Knew those TTs understeered badly! Hope the guy is ok but seems to me he ran out of talent going way to fast for the road conditions.

Any news on how he is? Know he was taken to Addenbrookes but heard nothing since.

Although I don't wish death on anyone (except the truly evil) I would put a fiver on the fact that he was pissed and/or driving like a total fucking bellend.

If the family had been sat in the living room watching tele we could be dealing with a really sad situation.

Agreed. Looks like a 30 zone and can't really see how you can launch a car 4ft into the air and embed it that deep in a wall without driving well over that speed. The road at the junction looked really icy in the first shot as well.

A woman down this way was killed a few weeks ago when a lorry took a corner a bit to quick and ended up piling through her front room while she was sat watching the TV.

I tend to agree with you, being 20 and the car he was in, has all the telltale signs of a fucktard being behind the wheel.

Thankfully nobody else was hurt!

Trust it to be a e92 to readjust it's trajectory into the wall. Damage doesn't look too bad (to the 92)

It's the Audi stuck in the wall,the E92 was used as the take off ramp.

BMW's always show Audi's the way to go!

Thankfully no one else was hurt,but the driver of that Audi must of been stoking it to get that high.

Hopefully the Audi driver will recover ok.

I feel for the guy who owns the house and cars.

Both his cars a mess and the house in a fine mess too. That will be a right pain for him.

I feel for the people whose house and cars it is.
The house looks a right mess.
The Audi A4 does not look in good shape either.
Imagine this will be a long drawn out process for them to get everything repaired and back to normal.
