Sleepless Australian escapes car crash in bedroom

Demitrios Bisbelis was switching off his computer at about 2 a.m. when the car smashed through the front wall of his Carrum Downs home in this Australian city and landed on his bed, The Age reported.

The IT consultant was lying in the bed and had got up barely 20 minutes before the crash and was sitting in front of his computer to finish some work he had forgotten to do.
He was about to return to his bedroom when he heard the deafening crash.

"I’m very lucky because the bed was completely destroyed," he told 3AW.
"If I did survive (being hit by the car) I would have come out with very severe lifetime injuries."

The car rammed through the house fence, through its front wall and came to rest on the bed.Two 52-year-old men who were in the car suffered minor injuries.
