A man is fighting for his life after crashing his Audi TT into a house in the early hours of this morning.
The male driver, believed to be in his twenties, embedded the red sports car into the side of the house in Lowestoft, Suffolk, at 1.45am after coming off the road and crashing through a fence. He was taken to the James Paget Hospital with serious head injuries but was transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, where he was in a 'critical condition', said Suffolk Police today.

Three people inside the house, including the homeowners, were asleep at the time of the accident but were unharmed, besides shock.
They are said to be staying with friends while structural engineers inspected the house. Keith Shales, 66, who lives in nearby Cotmer Road, told the BBC: 'When I got there and saw the car through the hole in the hedge I thought that looks serious.
'I reckon he must be about four feet off the ground, I've never seen anything like it.' The driver also clipped an Audi estate car and BMW estate parked near the house on Long Meadow Walk. A bystander said the Audi estate had a baby seat in the front.
