How did they manage that? Speeding motorist loses control of his car and wedges it in the SECOND FLOOR of a California office block - leaving one passenger trapped for an hour

Speeding Car Goes Airborne, Plows Into Second Floor of Building

Orange County Fire says the Nissan Altima crossed three lanes before hitting a divider going from airborne to dangling half in, half out of a building at the corner of 17th and French streets.

Orange County firefighters carried a woman to safety as a Santa Ana home was consumed by flames Sunday night.

In a freaky accident, a auto flew through the air and crashed into the second floor of a building in Southern California on Sunday morning.

The auto remained lodged inside a dental office along at 319 E. 17th St. until about 7:50 a.m., when crews were able to get the vehicle out.

Police said the driver admitted to using narcotics and was expected to be admitted to a hospital for observation.

One person inside the vehicle was able to squeeze out, but a second occupant spent an hour and a half trapped in the auto as its tail end dangled precariously out of the building, officials said.

A DUI/narcotics case is being submitted to the district attorney, according to police. The vehicle struck the 2nd floor of the building and remained lodged.

The building was empty at the time of the crash, and the car's occupants sustained only minor injuries, Horner said.

Officials said that the other person had "self extricated".

Crews will use a crane to remove the auto from the building.
