A black SUV stuck on the roof of a home in eastern China after the motorist lost control of the automobile, Chinese media reported.
Closed-circuit tv footage revealed the car swerving in a broad arc and crashing into the tiled roof of a home next to the road in Taizhou City, Jiangsu province.
“With a big bang, I saw a vehicle stuck in the roof,” the property owner stated.
Part of the roof collapsed because of the impact.
The driver climbed up out of the automobile using a ladder, and appeared unhurt.
He said he was aiming to prevent other automobiles, and stepped on the accelerator by mistake.
“A tricycle appeared suddenly and I turned north only to discover that an automobile was coming in my direction. And I stepped on the accelerator mistakenly and altered my direction.”
He was going at around 70km per hour at the time, he informed a policeman.
The vehicle was lifted off the property by a crane, video from Chinese broadcaster CCTV revealed.
