Audi Driver Smashes Into House And Flees With Door In Windscreen
An Audi driver was arrested after smashing into a house and attempting to flee with a door embedded in the windscreen.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drink and/or drugs.

The 18-year-old motorist was hospitalised with head injuries but is not thought to be seriously hurt, according to the BBC.
Elsewhere, a Porsche driver has had an absolute shocker parking on a driveway - smashing into two other vehicles in the process.
Footage shared on social media shows the disastrous park-job as it unfolded.
In the video, which was seemingly recorded on a security camera, the silver Taycan can be seen making its way up the drive, which is on a fairly steep incline.
For a few seconds, the very expensive car stops before suddenly shooting forwards, crashing into the back of the car in front and then flying off the drive all together - landing on top of a vehicle parked on the curb below.
Fortunately, no injuries have been reported as a result of the crash.
The purported driver of the car took to Twitter to share their misery with the world, claiming it happened after they accidentally engaged the 'launch control' feature which, as the name suggests, is not meant for parking.
They said: "So I did this today..."

They added: "If you're wondering how this happened, pressing the brake and accelerator at the same time engages launch control, on this Taycan it's 0-60 in 2.4 seconds."
When asked why they thought it would be a good idea to press the accelerator and brake at the same time, the driver said: "[To] see what happens."
Those famous last words.
Speaking to The Sun about the incident, a local resident said they raced outside to see what happened after hearing a loud crash.
They told the publication: "I feel sorry for the guy. He was visiting a neighbour of mine.
"I heard it and went to offer some help to make sure he was ok. Luckily, there were no serious injuries.
"I heard it happen, it was a loud crashing noise. He was pretty shaken up. He had a few bumps and bruises, but he was ok.
"He seemed like a really nice, genuine guy and he'd just smashed up his new Porsche."
So remember guys, when parking: check your mirrors, take it nice and slow and do not engage launch control.
