EUREKA, Mo. — It wasn’t a nightmare. It really happened. A sleeping homeowner in Missouri was awakened by a car crashing through their home’s roof, landing feet from their bed.
Eureka Fire Department Deputy Chief William Stamberger told KTVI two teens were leaving a graduation party when their car went off a road, landing at the bottom of a hill, then launching into the home.
The car actually tumbled end-over-end before landing on the home’s roof, The Associated Press reported.
No one was hurt in either the car or the house.
“If you look at that crash, it’s like, how did somebody not die?,” fire department spokesperson Scott Barthelmass said, according to the St. Louis Dispatch.
The driver and the passenger were actually able to get out of the crash on their own, the newspaper reported.
The homeowner did have to put out a small fire but was able to do so by using a garden hose.
