UPDATE: Driver of 'flying car' which smashed through Epsom bedroom banned from the road for two years
The driver of a ‘flying car’ which crashed through a couple's bedroom wall while they were sleeping has been disqualified from driving for two years.
On September 16 last year, a silver Lexus smashed into the side of a house in Bridge Road, Epsom, at 3am after the driver missed his turning off Alexandra Road into Upper High Street.
The car demolished a post box and went airborne after smashing into an Audi TT and a Honda Jazz. It then crashed its way through the couple’s bedroom wall before coming to a stop next to their bed.
After hitting the wall, the Lexus fell down and was left leaning against the building.
But despite huge damage to the house and the car, the stunned couple were unhurt and the occupants of the vehicle escaped with only minor injuries.
Surrey Police revealed this week that the driver of the vehicle was a 20-year-old man, from Syston in Leicestershire, who pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention and driving while under the influence of alcohol at South East Surrey Magistrates’ Court on November 5.
As well as a 24-month disqualification from driving, he given a 12-month community order and a fine.
