This is the moment an alleged drink-driver crashes his Lada into the front of a house and his car bonnet smashes through the brickwork into the family’s living room.

The incident took place on Sadovaya Street in the town of Ust-Labinsk in the south-western Russia’s region of Krasnodar Krai and several videos were later shared on social media.

In the footage, the unnamed man is seen driving across an intersection without stopping before crashing into the front entrance.

In the second video, the badly-damaged vehicle is seen in front of the brickwork while another clip shows the front of the SUV protruding into the living room as the family’s furniture and belongings appear covered in debris.

According to local media, the male driver managed to get out of the vehicle by himself, albeit totally covered in blood.

Onlookers claimed that the man was so drunk that he could barely string a sentence together, according to local media.

Reports said that no one else suffered any injuries in the incident.

The local authorities have yet to confirm whether they are investigating the matter and it is unclear whether the alleged drink-driver has been arrested yet.

Netizen ‘Airatminn’ said: “That was a decent crash test for both the car and the building, also probably for this alcoholic!”

‘Tomilovsergey’ commented: “What a moron, he left those poor people without a front wall during the winter.”
