ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say a speeding sport utility vehicle has collided with the top of a St. Louis home in the wake of hitting a dike and propelling into the air.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the driver was caught in the SUV when experts arrived Sunday evening. Michael Arras, the St. Louis Fire Department’s vice president of uncommon operations, said it resembled nothing he had ever experienced as a firefighter.
Teams painstakingly removed the man from the vehicle and took him to a healing center. His condition wasn’t known, yet fire authorities said he was in and out of cognizance after the crash.
Mortgage holder Bruce Redding found the SUV on his rooftop when he returned home from the rec center. The 66-year-old said that the “good thing is” he is alive.
