Man Injured As Car Ploughs Into House

A man was seriously injured when a car crashed into a house in Lowestoft, Suffolk.

The Audi TT is thought to have left the road, hit a vehicle on the drive and smashed into the northern corner of the home in Long Meadow Walk.

Emergency services were called to the scene, at the road's junction with Uplands Road North at around 1.45am on Sunday, and found a man in his 20s trapped in the vehicle.

Police closed the road before the injured man was taken to James Paget Hospital with serious head injuries.

The injured man has since been transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.

Structural engineers have been called to attend the property.

According to police there were people in the house at the time, but no-one was hurt.

"Just shocked", said a spokesman.

The road has now been reopened.
