A family in Lowestoft, UK woke up to quite a surprise Sunday morning when they found a bright red Audi TT parked in their living room. While the details of the crash are unknown, the video shows the TT lodged halfway into the side of a house after the car somehow drove through a hedge, launched in the air and drove over two parked cars.

From the angle of the accident shown on the BBC video, it appears the roads may have been snowy or ice and there was a berm behind the hedges, which apparently launched the car into the air helping it drive over a parked BMW 3 Series Coupe and an Audi A4 Avant. Reports indicate that the driver was in his 20s, and he suffered serious head injuries and was taken to the hospital in critical condition; there were three people inside the house, but none of them were injured. The car belonged to the driver's father.

Scroll down for three videos showing the aftermath of the accident, and head over to BBC for that news report.

      I remember my best friend and I bringing our mother in law, yes we married sisters, to the doctors in Fall River Mass and went to go to pick up something quick to eat. We don't know how the elderly person did it because the burger King was literally barricaded on that side but they lodged their car 10 in the air into the side of the building. My friend still had the nerve to ask if they were open.

      Audi driver. No surprise here. They are idiots always trying to race for no reason and don't know that turn signal even exists.

        They just know it turns off their led's so they don't use it.

      If he wants to part it out, I'd like to place dibs on the wheels.

      That's nothing. I remember years ago when some old dude hit the wrong pedal while reversing out his driveway (again in the UK) and ended up parked squarely atop his son's car ... which until that point had been a McLaren F1! This guy got off [very] lightly.

      Snow or ice? Really? That's the explanation? How about the 120mph velocity? Contributing factor?

      Has the term "brick" evolved to mean crash or wreck? Because that's not how it's ever been used in the past. When you brick a device you render it useless due to corrupting the firmware. That Audi ain't bricked, it's simply wrecked.

      Really shocking accident. I feel for the young driver. Yes, he destroyed three cars, and caused serious structural damaged to the house, but they're repairable / replaceable. Human life isn't. I drove past the scene yesterday, the Audi A4 wasn't there, the BMW and TT were still at the scene, though the TT was on the ground. I wish the young driver a speedy, and complete recovery. To those who seem to find it funny, shame on you. If you've ever lost a loved one in a car smash, you'll feel differently. There's a time and place to apportion blame, and this isn't the time. What caused the smash? No one knows, everything so far is pure conjecture.
