A MAN was injured while watching TV when a BMW smashed in the living room of a house as he lay on the sofa.

Paramedics rushed to the scene after the motor ploughed through the front wall of the home in Selly Oak, Birmingham.

Amin Jalili was watching the telly at 5.30am when the car smashed into the living room.

“There was a lot of dust due to bricks breaking and there was smoke from the car.
