Wood you believe it? Drunk driver Jovan Miroslav walked away without a scratch after a high-speed crash into a tree with such force that the engine was torn out of his Porsche 911 Turbo and carried on down the road on its own - leaving the wrecked vehicle behind.
The accident happened at Regensdorf in Switzerland when the 22-year-old had been at a remote country pub with friends.
From there he went to a friends house and carried on drinking and at six a.m. in the morning when he finally decided to head home but rather than calling a taxi he climbed into his new 100,000 GBP sports car.
A police spokesman said: "He was travelling much too fast according to all the indications and simply lost control and into the tree. The crash was so powerful that the motor of the car was torn out of the body and carried on down the road – coming to rest on its own in the middle of the street.
"The car also spun out of control from the tree and hit a telegraph pole. It was a complete write-off but the driver amazingly emerged without a scratch after the air bags kicked in."
