The still of the night was broken by a crash that jolted a family in Malaysia out of their slumber.
"We were shocked when we heard a bang and found a luxury car had flipped after crashing into our car parked in front of our house," said Siti Nazura Ithnain, 17.
A BMW driven by a 45-year-old man crashed outside their house in Bukit Duyong, Malacca, at 3.50am on Monday.
Investigations revealed that the man had a fake gun on him, along with a bullet and an Erimin-5 tablet, reported Harian Metro.
He also had a fake Prime Minister's Office pass and false registration for the car, which had been reported missing in Bandar Baru Klang, Selangor.
The man, who has a criminal record involving fraud and drug possession, sustained injuries to his face and was taken to Hospital Melaka for treatment.
Driver's face bloodied
Siti Nazura said she and her family members saw that the driver's face was bloodied when she alerted the authorities.
"Although our Proton Putra is dented and the window shattered, I am relieved that the car did not crash into our house when the 12 of us were asleep," she said.
"In 10 years, this is the third time an accident has occurred in the vicinity of our house, but this is the most serious because even the perimeter wall has been destroyed."
Malacca's Criminal Investigations Department chief Raja Shahrom Raja Abdullah said: "When we arrived at the scene, the fire department handed us a fake gun and a bullet that were found on the BMW driver. He also had a pack containing one Erimin-5 tablet, and the car he drove had been reported missing and has a fake registration.
"We will conduct further investigations with regard to the drug possession and the fake car registration."
