This is the devastating moment a Porsche driver accidentally crashes over a wall while trying to park their vehicle.
CCTV footage of the incident in Manningtree, Essex, has gone viral on social media.
The driver of the car – a Porsche Taycan – is thought to have accidentally accelerated, the Sun reports.
The electric car, which is on sale for more than £83,000, can accelerate up to 62mph in just 2.8 seconds.
A neighbour told the Sun Online that the driver was visiting a resident when the incident occurred.
He told the paper: “I heard it and went to offer some help to make sure he was ok. Luckily, there were no serious injuries.

"I heard it happen, it was a loud crashing noise. He was pretty shaken up. He had a few bumps and bruises, but he was ok.
"He seemed like a really nice, genuine guy and he'd just smashed up his new Porsche."
Footage of the unfortunate incident has gone viral on Twitter.
A neighbour's CCTV shows the car being driven up a sloped driveway before it stops for a moment.
The car then surges forward and collides with a 4×4 parked outside a house at the top of the steep drive.

But the Porsche carries on and heads over a wall and collides with another car before ending up wedged between both.
The driver's parking attempt went viral online after footage was shared.
One person commented: "The Porsche Taycan is known for its harsh acceleration…"
Another replied: "It's hurting me thinking how expensive the fixing cost."
Motoring journalist Adrian Padeanu said the powerful car's 'instant torque' could have been the "culprit".
On Motor1 he wrote: "The driver might’ve stepped on the “gas” pedal a bit too much and the Taycan’s electric motors did their thing.
"After all, even the base 4S has an instant torque of 477 pound-feet (647 Newton-meters) of torque. Porsche has launched a lesser single-motor version with rear-wheel drive, but this car riding on the Mission E concept's wheels can’t be it since it’s only available in China for the time being.
