Authorities were called to the 5900 block of Lillian where a car was lodged into the roof of a house

An SUV lost control and became airborne on July 16, landing on the roof of a home in St Louis, Mo.

The St. Louis Fire Department responded to an unusual call Sunday afternoon. It flew quite a distance too, meaning the driver must have been going very fast. Crews arrived to the 5900 block of Lillian around noon where a vehicle was trapped on a roof.

The driver, who's not being identified at this time, was taken to Barnes Jewish hospital in critical condition.

It is unknown what the extent of his injuries are.

Officials said the driver of the SUV drove onto the lawn of Bruce Redding, just before launching himself on the top of the home.

Additional Temporary Foreign Workers to Receive Visas
They are regarded as countries with the most total overstays that do not participate in the visa waiver programme. Until past year , guest workers who had already participated were not counted toward the cap.

"I can see straight through my house", Redding, who recently paid off the home, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Serious damage appears to have been done to the home, with one of the front walls and part of the roof caved in.

Louis Fire Department's deputy chief of special operations, says he has never encountered anything like this before.

'I had a vehicle smash, turn my railing off. "I had another auto smash into the side of the house, park right in between our houses". 'It was determined that it was viable.

Dramatic footage from the scene shows the vehicle nose down in the roof of the building while firefighters work to secure the area. We put just enough on the roof to make the extrication and get off'. That's exactly what happened Sunday afternoon.
