Car on a roof of a house – level 3

Now here is something you don’t see every day. A car on the roof of a house in Houston, Texas. The vehicle triggered Susan Mistini's house alarm and at first she thought someone was trying to break in.

"'What’s going on?', and he said, 'hurry up, there's a car on your roof'. 'A car on the roof?' And he said, 'Yes, a car on your roof!'"

The local police say the car flew into the air, when the driver was speeding and failed to follow the bend in the road.

"The car went inverted and somersaulted and then landed on the roof upside down." The driver has been taken to hospital and is in a stable condition.

Interesting words: trigger (launch), break in (get illegally into a house), invert (turn upside down), somersault (turn in the air).
