Car Crashes through the Roof of a Missouri Family's House and Landed a Few Feet Away from Bed
A car crashed into a family's roof, and by some miracle, everyone, including the homeowners and those in the vehicle, lived to tell the tale.
In a stunning turn of events, a car crashed into the roof of a Missouri family's house. The vehicle landed just a few feet away from the bed.
The incident occurred in the early hours of May 23, 2021, startling the whole house awake by the large noise. According to the owner of the house, both she, her husband, and their daughter were asleep when they heard the crash.
The accident caused flames, prompting the husband to run for a fire hose which managed to reach their bedroom the car crashed into. They were also worried for their daughter whose room was above theirs.
Law enforcement is also looking into the possibility of drugs or alcohol being involved.
Police think that the car was driving at high speed and hit a stump, flew into the air, hit the fence, which consequently caused it to tumble in the air all the way into the house. The individuals in the car survived.
THE OWNER OF THE HOUSE SPEAKS
Expressing how she feels, the owner of the house expressed that she is only now coming to terms with the incident. However, she remained positive, stating:
"With all the bad, it seems like you've got this voodoo over you but yet God is still - he definitely had to be with us."
She also said that her daughter is okay. She lost their son via a crash in 2008, and she was grateful that she didn't have to go through a similar process.
