CCTV footage shows the dramatic moment an out of control car speeds down a hill and smashed into a parked car, shunting it through the front of a house.
The terrifying footage shows the crash in Northfield, Birmingham, in the early hours of Saturday morning.
As most residents slept soundly, a car sped down the hill, which is known to be icy, toward the junction.
Instead of slowing and turning, the car shoots across the road and into the parked car opposite.
It hits the vehicle with such force that it shunts the car through the front of the house, smashing the wall and window inwards.

Emergency services were called to the road at 3am today, to be greeted by the horrific crash scene.
Thankfully no one was hurt, but neighbours were awoken by the sound of the impact and the car alarm that followed.
A number of residents went to investigate and were shocked to find the car empty, with the airbags activated and the keys still in the ignition.
