A MAN remains in hospital today after a car crashed into a house in Lowestoft.
The man in his 20s, suffered serious head injuries when the Audi TT he was driving hit the building in Long Meadow, Carlton Colville at around 1.45am on Sunday.
He is being treated at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
A Suffolk police spokesman said his condition is described as “critical but stable”.
The car is understood to have left the road and crashed through a hedge, over two cars parked in a driveway before hitting the house.
Emergency services were called to the scene.
Fire crews from Lowestoft South station and paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service attended, with firefighters arriving at the property by 1.52am.

The road was closed while the trapped male motorist was freed from the wreckage and put in the care of the ambulance service.

Fire crews remained at the scene to make the scene safe. Structural engineers have also been called to attend the property but no-one inside the house was injured.
