Shocking CCTV footage shows the moment a jaguar speeds past a mother pushing a stroller and plows into the front of a house.
Emergency services raced to Moston Lane, north Manchester, at around 3.45pm on Tuesday after the £69,995 electric Jaguar I-Pace sped across the road and crashed into the house.
Several homes had to be evacuated and the road was closed after the collision – likened to an “earthquake” by neighbors – led to a suspected gas leak.
A video of the aftermath showed the property’s garden wall destroyed and the front window shattered by the impact of the accident.

In the footage, a woman who had been preparing to cross the side street with a stroller appears to breathe a sigh of relief and cross herself.
The driver then appears to get out of the vehicle unharmed and inspect the damage as passers-by crowd around the crumpled Jaguar.
A neighbor said: “There was a huge bang and everything shook.” It was like an earthquake. I thought it was an earthquake. Then the police came pretty quickly.’
Another said the street was “covered by police officers” and was cordoned off shortly after the incident. “They were lucky no one went there,” he added. “The driver got out of the car but was fine.”
Another said: “I don’t understand how it happened.” Everyone was lucky. Imagine them in the house, what they would have thought. They must have just been like, “What the fuck?”
