The Porsche driver was trapped in the wreckage following the crash, which happened in Offwell, near Honiton in Devon, and closed a country road for several hours
Startling images capture the destruction after a Porsche collided into a house on a rural lane.
The crash left a gaping hole in the living room wall of the property in Offwell, near Honiton in Devon, on Wednesday morning. The driver – the only person in the car – was trapped in the wreckage.
The smash resulted in major damage to part of the house and residents had to evacuate. There was a man trapped inside the car after the impact. Multiple emergency teams came to his aid due to the serious, potentially life-changing injuries he sustained, according to police.
Photographs depicted a white Porsche lodged into the side of the house with substantial wreckage shown to a portion of the exterior wall. The incident led to temporary closure of that stretch of road for four hours before it reopened later. An operation to dislodge the Porsche from the damaged property and secure the building was undertaken thereafter.
A representative from the fire service explained: “Fire control mobilised crews from Honiton and Axminster alongside with an officer to a report of a road traffic collision involving a car and a building in Offwell at 12.19am.” They further stated: “Shortly after booking in attendance, an assistance message was received asking for the attendance of the Heavy Rescue Vehicle from Middlemoor to provide extra stabilisation equipment.”
“This incident involved one man trapped in the vehicle which had collided into a building where the corner of the building had fallen down. The occupants of the house evacuated for safety precaution. Fire crew provided scene safety for this incident, Police and ambulance were also in attendance.”
A car was pictured hanging out of a house after the driver appeared to have driven through a window of the property in nearby Salisbury, Wiltshire in December.
Incredible images show the Vauxhall Corsa lodged in the brickwork of the house after the driver had crashed and needed to be cut free by firefighters. It appeared as though the car had launched off the driveway and into the home. Fire crews had to use hydraulic cutting equipment to get the driver out of the vehicle on Wednesday morning. Debbie Mallet, who lives nearby, said that the car had caused a lot of damage to the house.
