    TT embedded in house

    Hope the Guy pulls through, look like the drives side took a fair amount of the brunt of the accident

    BBC News - Man seriously hurt as crash leaves car embedded in home

    Interesting insurance claim, looks like both A4 & 3 series are a write off, and god knows how much damage to the house.

    Given the distance the TT covered from the curb to the house (plus the embedding through a supporting wall), there must have been a fair bit of momentum and so I suspect an excess of speed for the conditions in all probability. As the curb is curved with the name of the road signposted, I'm guessing this is at or near a corner or junction. Perhaps the chap came in too hot, lost traction and went sailing straight on?

    It doesn't matter how many wheels are driven if none of them have traction.

    Irrespective of fault, I too hope the guy (presumably the driver) pulls through.

    yeh I wonder what a RTA expert would have to say on this. It does sound like speeding.
