An OAP was left in shock when she was woken by a car next to her bed which veered off the road and hit the house smashing its way through the wall of her bedroom.
The incident happened in the municipality of Dollrottfeld in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein on Saturday, 28th October.
A resident named only as Renate, 83, was sleeping in her bedroom, while her husband, named only as Guenther, 85, was in another ground-floor room when a loud bang woke them up.
They were quickly taken outside with the help of a neighbour.
Renate told local media: “I had seen the news on TV and went to bed around 7:30pm.
“Suddenly I was woken from my sleep by a huge bang. I thought there must have been another accident outside.
“When I sat down, I looked at a demolished car.
“There was rubble everywhere.
“Then there were people crawling out of the vehicle windows. They didn’t say anything.”
The police said in a statement obtained by CEN: “According to previous police investigations, the car driven by three young men between the ages of 19 and 20 initially left the road on federal highway 201 and then crashed into an adjacent single-family home on a curve.
“The car crashed through the wall of the house and only came to a stop inside the affected residential building.
“A nearby distribution box and an adjacent carport were also damaged.”
The police said the two residents were slightly injured by flying debris and Guenther had been taken to hospital for first aid.
They said that the residential building was severely damaged and in acute danger of collapse and was supported by the emergency teams before the vehicle was taken out of the residence.
They added: “The occupants of the affected car were also taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment as a precaution.
“The amount of material damage caused by the accident is yet to be quantified.”
The elderly couple’s daughter Simone, 46, was reportedly watching a movie in her nearby home when she suddenly heard a knock on her window.
Simone said: “A couple was standing there and asked if I was Renate’s daughter. They said that my mother had a car stuck in the wall of her house. “
Renate said this was not the first time their house had been involved in an accident and added: “We have been living here for 47 years.
“There have already been four accidents. One time the gutter was taken down. Another time the glass in the windows was smashed.
“Two years ago, two young people, aged 16 and 17, drove into our house on a Vespa. One of the girls was seriously injured.”
