Melbourne, Oct 29 (IANS) A sleepless Australian got up to work on his computer late at night shortly before a speeding car crashed into his home and landed right on top of his mattress. He said: “I’m very lucky because the bed was completely destroyed.”

Demitrios Bisbelis was switching off his computer at about 2 a.m. when the car smashed through the front wall of his Carrum Downs home in this Australian city and landed on his bed, The Age reported.

The IT consultant was lying in the bed and had got up barely 20 minutes before the crash and was sitting in front of his computer to finish some work he had forgotten to do.

He was about to return to his bedroom when he heard the deafening crash.

“I’m very lucky because the bed was completely destroyed,” he told 3AW.

“If I did survive (being hit by the car) I would have come out with very severe lifetime injuries.”

The car rammed through the house fence, through its front wall and came to rest on the bed.

Two 52-year-old men who were in the car suffered minor injuries.
