    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) ― A New Zealand man got the fright of his life when a runaway SUV crashed into his house and knocked him off the toilet, a newspaper reported Friday.

    The vehicle had been parked with its emergency brake only half on, and rolled backward down a 32 foot bank into the house Thursday in the southern city of Christchurch, "The Press" newspaper reported.

    Police said a building contractor working next door had parked the vehicle at the top of the bank minutes earlier.

    "He came back to his vehicle and found it next door, basically," Christchurch police Sgt. Kim Reid was quoted as saying.

    The paper said that when the homeowner was asked how the builder might be feeling, he said: "What about me? I got knocked off the toilet. I got a hell of a fright."

    The man asked not to be named because he is selling the house and did not want the incident to interfere with the sale.

    Police said no charges would be filed because the incident occurred on private property.

    That's why you put cars in "park" when you park them.

    The paper said that when the homeowner was asked how the builder might be feeling, he said: "What about me? I still feel a little flushed."

    Whoa, that's messed up... in most situations a scare like that would make a guy crap his pants.
