Driver slams car into second-floor of house in Brazil

A driver in Brazil had a lucky escape after his out-of-control car literally flew over a creek and embedded itself in the side of house.

The 25-year-old driver had to be pulled out by rescue workers. He was taken to the hospital, but only suffered minor injuries.

Residents in the house he slammed into were "shocked" by the incident.

One family was fast asleep when the car smashed through the wall and stopped just a few feet away from the baby's bed, but everyone managed to escape any injuries.

Police are still investigating the accident, but they said there was enough evidence to assume the car was over the speed limit.

The man will be charged for driving without a license and for risking other people's lives.
