Car lands on roof of St. Louis home

"This is the second time it's happened since I've been here for 6 months", said Angelo Bridges, who lives across the street from the crash.

The St. Louis Fire Department said the man was trapped inside his auto on the roof for over an hour. An SUV crashed and became embedded into the roof of a house along the 5900 Lillian.

He added: "The good thing is, I'm alive".

The driver is said to be alert and responsive but still in a critical condition following the accident close to St. Louis city center, Missouri.

He told the news website: "I can see straight through my house... this is everything that I've worked for all my life, and for someone to run through a stop sign and destroy it".

"That's not one you get every day", he said after the department's Collapse Rescue Task Force was called in to handle rescue efforts.

The St. Louis Fire Department said the driver was trapped in his auto for about an hour before he was extricated. "They need to put some speed bumps or something down", he said. It's unclear how the vehicle got on the roof. "It was determined that it was viable".

Although Redding was was able to maneuver himself around in the living room after the crash the house may not be habitable again.

Redding recently retired after 22 years at Norwood Hills Country Club, where he was restaurant and bar manager. She wasn't hurt. He's lived in the home alone for the last 25 years or so.

"Our church fence has damage from a vehicle accident that happened just a few weeks ago, but I've never seen anybody come that fast", said Davis.
