Driver and Car Gets Lodged Upside Down Into the Roof of a Home
In 2021, nearly 5,000 people lost their lives on a Texas road. However, Texas is not the only state suffering; more than 46,000 people are killed in car accidents in the U.S. every single year.
LOUD CRASH CAUSES CONCERN
Residents in a Zachary County neighborhood were caught off guard when they heard a loud crashing sound outside. "We heard a loud noise, so we knew something ran into something," said Barbara Baudouin.
Baudouin and her husband ran outside expecting to see a car crash, however, at first glance, everything seemed normal. As they began looking up and down the street Baudouin said, " Another neighbor yells, 'it's on top of the house!'"
LODGED INTO A ROOF
Sure enough, on top of a home was an upside-down vehicle with a woman inside. The car was lodged into the roof of the home with wreckage all around.
Authorities speculate she crashed into a ditch and the tree then went airborne landing on top of a nearby roof of a home. Video shows the vehicle lodged into the roof landing on top of the family's living room.
At the time of the crash, a family was inside the home, including an eight-year-old child and a thirteen-year-old thankfully, neither was injured.
THE DRIVER WAS RESCUED AND CONSCIOUS
The woman was carefully taken out of the vehicle and taken to a hospital by helicopter. She was conscious at the time of her rescue and her current condition is unknown.
Authorities are currently trying to determine if the driver had a medical emergency that caused her to crash. Witnesses in the area painted a different picture as they admitted to seeing the woman driving around 80 mph before crashing into the ditch.
