Claudia Andronic fled her home immediately after the crash, with her husband, their seven-year-old son and her mum and dad.

None of them were injured.

We were sat in the kitchen having coffee when we heard a big bang - like a crunch.

When we looked, a car had come into the house through my bedroom wall. We were shocked.

The men in the car, they ran away.

Claudia said they will stay in their damaged home as it gets fixed.

The family only bought the house a year ago.

My son was fine, he was not scared. But look at the house. What will happen? I only bought it a year ago. We are going to stay here because our insurance covers the work.
