THERE has been a lucky escape on the Gold Coast this afternoon after a runaway car smashed through the front of a family home.
The freak accident happened at Pacific Pines around midday when the car took off on its own.
The driverless vehicle gained speed as it rolled backwards down the suburban street before ploughing boot-first into the brick home.
