Vehicle lands on Texas roof
HOUSTON, Texas (WHDH) -- A car crashed and ended up lodged in the roof of a home, creating a shocking scene for many.
"Absolutely once in a lifetime. It's unbelievable,” said Stephen Wilson, a neighbor.
A car upside down, lodged in the roof of this home in Texas. Police said the driver could have been going 90 miles per hour.
Police said the driver could have been going between 85 and 90 miles an hour when he left the roadway. He drove right up an embankment, which launched him into the air, crashing into the first house and landing upside down on the second."
"It’s just outrageous. I've seen bad accidents over here, but this is really the worst one I’ve ever seen,” said Justin Hopper, a neighbor.
Though it sounds impossible, the truck's driver walked away from the bizarre wreck with barely a scratch, once firefighters got him out.
"I mean, this guy was bouncing off houses. He ended up on a roof. I don't know how he walked out of that,” said a neighbor.
Although people were inside both homes when the car crashed into them, no one inside was hurt.
As for getting the car off the house…that took a big crane, and some nifty maneuvering.
"The end that's sticking up, we're gonna pick it up from there. And just kind of slide it out of there, and it'll be straight up and down,” said a man.
After ten plus hours, the car was finally on the ground.
