BEAMER ME UP

BMW crashes into family's UPSTAIRS room
By Geoffrey Lakeman
mirro.co.uk

A BMW flew 10ft through the air punching a hole in the first floor bedroom of a house yesterday.

The Beamer then landed in the garden, trapping the driver and his passenger, and caught fire. One of them was seriously hurt. Sleeping homeowners Joe, 65, and Joyce Harman, 62, of Basingstoke, Hants were unharmed.

Joe said: "I heard a mighty thump and thought the dog had knocked something over. On the landing I realised we were minus a bedroom."

The driver lost control on a bend and hit a kerb, catapulting the car into the house leaving a 10ft by 8ft hole.Police are investigating.


thats pretty crazy.. dont hear of too many bmws in houses!

ok i guess i was wrong.. this does happen more than you think! funny how they say that its BMW crashing into a house, and not just car


Submitted by J, L, CR & TJ MORRISON

An elderly couple escaped injury after a BMW crashed through the side of their home in Surrey.
The car skidded in a quiet street in Warlingham before clipping a curb, tipping sideways and embedding itself in the detached home.
Elderly householders Jacqueline and Terence Harding were woken in their upstairs bedroom at 11pm.
They were led to safety after finding the car lodged in their hallway.
One shocked neighbor told The Sun: "We heard a car outside, then a screech and a thud - followed by silence.
"We ran to look and couldn't believe the damage. It's incredible that no one was killed."
Structural engineers warned that removing the car would probably cause the two-story house to collapse.
Car driver Robert Kember, 23-year-old son of ex-Crystal Palace soccer boss Steve, escaped through a rear window.
He was taken to hospital but later allowed home

If it was an enzo, I'd shake their hand.... then join them in crying.

For the car and the house.

a guy i know at school did that in his POS acurarice. guys got in their hondas at a poker tournament and one guy says "ya dude, i know this road, floor it!" and off they go racing. they are going 100+ and finally see that the end of the road is coming into a coldusack. one manages to stop while the other flies off of an embancment, misses two HUGE trees, and one HUGE propane tank. then the passengers get out and run leaving the driver behind to deal with it.


not to mention one guy that was in the car is a friend of mine who then got a speeding ticket a few minutes later for trying to drive off.

^he didnt hit the tree or a propane tank, just the house. but i said that to show the stupidity. you just crashed into a house, you know that at least 3 cop cars are on their way, you should drive normally.
