Car on a roof of a house – level 2

06-03-2013 06:00

In Texas, a car landed on the roof of a house in Houston. The car activated the house alarm system. The home occupant, Susan Mistini, said she thought someone was trying to get into the house.

Then she discovered that there was a car on her roof. The local police say the car’s driver drove very fast and lost control of the car in the bend of the road. The car flew into the air, turned around a couple of times and landed on the house roof. The driver has been taken to hospital and is in stable condition. Mistini was not injured.

Interesting words: occupant (someone who lives in a house), activate (start), turn out (happen unexpectedly).
