GEORGE TOWN: A homeowner in Penang got a shock on Saturday (June 25) morning when a car rammed into his home at about 7am.
"I heard a bang outside and rushed out. I saw that a car had crashed into the front of my house and the empty house next door that had been used as a welding workshop," said 52-year-old Hasbullah Mohd Khalid.
News portal Berita Harian Online reported that Hasbullah was boiling water while his three children were in another room when the incident happened.
"I was confused for a moment when I saw the damage to the front of the house as it was just a few meters from the place where I was boiling water. It was only separated by a wooden wall," he said to the portal.
Hasbullah said the damage to his house was estimated at RM50,000.
He did not have time to meet the man who was driving the vehicle because he was taken away by his friend.
It is understood that the case has been handed over to the police for further action.
