A 75-year-old man was fortunate enough to have escaped not being crushed to death by a car that rammed into his parlor when he stood up to go to the toilet.
Stan Miler, disabled, was busy watching TV in his sitting room in Arbury, a city in Cambridge when a Vauxhall Corsa car busted his wall, driving into the parlor.
Moments Stan went to the loo, the car came crashing into the spot he was sitting on
According to the lucky old man,
If I hadn't got up for the loo I don't know if I'd be here, but I am just glad the driver was not hurt,
British police said the driver passed the legal alcohol limit for drivers, three times over. The 32-year-old driver was charged with drink-driving, ruining a property with criminal intent and driving without insurance and driver's license.

I think someone must have been looking out for me
