The car ended up where?
A vehicle crashed onto the second story of a home in Placer County over the weekend, authorities said.
Cal Fire’s Nevada Yuba Placer unit shared photos that showed the smashed vehicle after it went through the front of the home, into the second-story craft room and stairwell.
Cal Fire and Placer County Fire Department crews responded to the crash on Robbers Ravine Road in the Cape Horn area Sunday.
The California Highway Patrol said a woman was driving “extremely fast.” The speed limit on the residential road is 10 miles per hour. A sign informing drivers of the speed limit was in front of the home.
Officers are looking into if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the cause of the crash.
The driver was airlifted to Sutter Roseville Hospital with major injuries, CHP said. Her current condition is not clear.
Bob Arant, the homeowner, said he has been living with his wife in an RV on their property since the crash.
“That’s what it is,” Arant said. “One in a million.”
The pair was luckily not home when the incident happened. The car has since been removed from the roof, leaving a massive hole.
Arant said his home insurance said they will not cover the extensive damage. He is hoping the driver’s insurance will cover the repairs but is not sure if that will happen.
A GoFundMe was established to help the homeowners pay for repairs. You can find that link here.
