CAPE HORN, Calif. (KRNV) — They don’t call SUVs high-profile vehicles for nothing.
Somebody in California crashed one into a part of a house that rarely comes into contact with anything on wheels: its roof.
First responders arrived on Sunday to find an SUV on the second story of a home between Sacramento and Reno, Nev., so that’s where they did their work.
First, they stabilized the carport that was below the vehicle.
Then, they climbed through a window and used a rope to extricate the driver, who was the only person in the vehicle.
Paramedics were upstairs, as well, and the electric company had to shut off power in the area.
Luckily, nobody else was injured.
The cause of the unusual crash is under investigation.
