Byline: MARI JONES Daily Post Reporter email@example.com
A PENSIONER phoned his sister to ask if there had been an 'earthquake' after opening his blinds to discover his privet hedge had collapsed and his car had been mysteriously damaged in his driveway. Fortunately Peter Wright's neighbour could provide an answer as to what happened in Station Road East, Penmaenmawr, as he had filmed the whole bizarre episode.
As 76-year-old Mr Wright lay asleep in the back bedroom of his house, a white BMW Series 1 had careered through his hedge and smashed into his pride and joy - a Toyota MR2.
The Toyota was shunted seven metres forward by the BMW, leaving it just inches away from the house.
Mr Wright's neighbour who lives close by heard the impact, and started filming what happened next.
"The crash happened around 12.40am on Saturday morning," said his daughter Tracy Wright.
"My father didn't hear a thing as he sleeps at the back of the house, but his neighbour captured what happened after the crash."
The health care worker continued: "Around three minutes after the crash, a transit van turned up and pulled the BMW out of the garden.
"Then they just drove off. My father woke up the next morning, opened the blinds and saw that his privet hedge had collapsed.
"He couldn't understand what had happened, and phoned my Aunt to ask if there had been an earthquake in North Wales overnight.
"He then walked onto the driveway and saw that his car, which is his pride and joy has been destroyed.
"My 76-year-old dad is devastated and heartbroken. I think whoever has done this are scum. My dad's insurance will pay out but only at his own expense."
Miss Wright added: "Nothing like this has ever happened before on this road, my dad has lived at his house for over 30 years.
"We have reported the matter to the police.
"I have no idea how this car ended up crashing into my dad's garden, but we would like them to be caught."
A North Wales Police spokesman said they are investigating the incident and as a result cannot comment further.
