Vehicle crashes into office's upper floor after becoming airborne

A municipal worker used a front-loader to prop up the car's back end while Los Angeles County Urban Search and Rescue teams freed the trapped man, according to Horner.

In a freakish incident, a speeding auto soared into the sky and rammed into the second floor of a building after hitting a median on the street.

A auto crashed into the second floor of a California office building early Sunday morning, police said.

Orange County firefighters carried a woman to safety as a Santa Ana home was consumed by flames Sunday night. They determined the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, northbound on French approaching 17th.

The spokesman said that the police had registered a charge of driving under the influence but that the driver had not yet been charged as he was still in the hospital.

The vehicle reportedly crossed three lanes before hitting a centre divider, causing it to fly through the air and land inside the two-storey building.

Authorities say two people escaped serious injuries when the auto they were in went airborne and slammed into the second floor of a dental office in Southern California. The fire was quickly extinguished. However, both sustained with minor injuries.

After the vehicle hit the median and went airborne, a small fire erupted on the site, though it was extinguished immediately.
