A car ploughed into the wall of a house in Brandy Way, Sutton, south London, on Wednesday morning while the owners, Chris Simpson and his pregnant wife Laura, were at work.
Mr Simpson, 32, said: “When they called and told me there was a car driven through my wall into my lounge this is exactly what I pictured.”
Police were called at 10.30am by a member of the public who saw the 4x4 vehicle embedded in the building.
The female driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital, but her injuries are not believed to be serious. The car is thought to be supporting the house and has to remain there in case its removal causes the house to collapse.
