Car drives onto roof by mistake
A stolen car became airborne and landed on the roof of a California apartment building, startling residents.The driver, who fled the scene in California in his boxer shorts, is said to have lost control in foggy conditions, and hit some large rocks that sent the car flying into the air.
Police say the driver of the stolen vehicle was speeding and hit a raised area of the road and became airborne.
No one was injured in the incident in Fresno, California despite two people being in the house at the time.
"It appears that they climbed the berm (kerb), the car begins to go airborne, strikes a boulder and a tree stump that further lifts the car airborne and launched it upon the roof about 10 feet behind it," Lt. Anthony Martinez of the Fresno Police said.
Some residents of the area were startled and thought the whole thing was a prank.
"At first I though it was a prank like you've been punked or something, I thought somebody lowered the car on the house because that's not something you see everyday," witness Jeanell Ricks said.
Police arrested a 26-year-old man a short distance away from the accident scene. He faces charges of driving a stolen vehicle.
The vehicle was later removed from the roof by a crane.
