‘We remained on scene and arranged recovery of the vehicle.’
Residents living near the scene said it was ‘a miracle’ the driver survived.
One said: ‘There are very few lights on the road and if you don’t know the road then the junction can appear very suddenly.
‘The wall of the gatehouse was totally demolished. It dates back more than 100 years but at least the driver got out alive.
‘After looking at the pictures of the car, it’s a miracle it wasn’t a fatal accident.’
Another local said: ‘That stretch of road is notorious for boy racers speeding between Leamington and Coventry.
‘There’s no speed cameras which is madness really. It looks like this driver had a very, very lucky escape.’
