Car goes airborne, lands in roof of house below roadway — PHOTOS

ESCONDIDO, Calif. — A sport utility vehicle went airborne and sailed through the roof of a home in California’s San Diego County, but the residents inside weren’t hurt.

The crash happened shortly before 12:30 a.m. Wednesday in Escondido.

Police tell U-T San Diego the driver of a BMW lost control during a turn, went off a road and plunged through the roof of a home that sits about 20 feet below the roadway.

Sgt. Jim Lanigan says the car was a loaner from a dealership and the driver fled.

Homeowner George Strother says the BMW landed on the hood of his Nissan Pathfinder in his garage and knocked the ceiling down onto another car. He and his wife weren’t hurt.

Police say it appears the driver of the BMW wasn’t hurt either.
