Story and video from SWNS

This is the moment a car is 'intentionally' smashed into the front of a house at high speed - before the driver fled the scene.

Police are hunting the driver of a car caught on CCTV crashing into the house - which witnesses claim was "deliberate".

The vehicle is seen speeding directly towards the house before it careers up the drive and into the front of the home in early hours of the morning. A crowd of people gathered to watch the aftermath in Hodge Hill, Birmingham.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "We were called to reports a car had hit a house on St Margaret's Road, Birmingham shortly after midnight yesterday morning, June 10.

"The occupants of the car had fled prior to police arrival.

"Anyone with information can contact us via Live Chat on our website, quoting log number 17 of 10/06".

One witness who lives on the street said he was told it was a deliberate act. He said: "We were woken by a loud noise, and a group of youngsters emerged from the accident scene.

"The occupants of the neighbouring properties came out to look at what happened, and we saw a car wedged in the front of the house.

"It seems as though the car was intentionally driven into the house. I've never seen anything like it".

It is not thought the occupants of the house were injured.
