Speeding Car Crashes Into Second-Story Window Of Office Building

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.

In a bizarre incident in Southern California on Sunday morning in which passersby thought at first that they were witnessing a movie stunt, a speeding vehicle lost control and flew through the air, landing directly in a window of a two-story office building. The front third of the vehicle was lodged inside the building and the remaining two-thirds was just hanging suspended above the street.

The crash ignited a small fire in the building with two people inside, but the fire was quickly contained with no casualties.

One person managed to scramble out of the vehicle to safety almost immediately, but one victim was trapped inside the vehicle for more than an hour, according to the Orange County Fire Authority. Note that the speeding Nissan Sentra was lodged into the side of a two-story office building in Santa Ana, California.

Multiple media sources are reporting that Los Angeles County Urban Search and Rescue was able to free the other individual in the vehicle, although it seems the person was trapped for over an hour inside the hanging vehicle, Captain Stephen Horner of the Orange County Fire Authority noted in an interview.

A statement from the Orange County Fire Authority noted that: “The vehicle hit the center divider and went airborne and landed into the building.”

Also of note, the crash caused a small fire at the point of impact on the second floor of the office building.

“The fire was quickly extinguished by the first arriving units,” Captain Horner noted.

The rescue team arrived in just a few minutes and went to work after they picked their jaws up off of the ground. The team eventually managed to remove the other individual safely out of the vehicle after determining the safest method to extricate the victim.

Horner went on to point out that “USAR was able to access the passenger door” to remove the trapped man.

He then continued, remarking, “They used a front loader from the city of Santa Ana to stabilize the vehicle and the members of USAR were able to gain access and pull the victim out from the passenger side of the vehicle safely.”

Horner also confirmed that the names of the two individuals involved in the crash have yet to be released to the media.

He noted that both of the victims had been taken to an area hospital to be treated for minor injuries, but miraculously no one was seriously hurt in the fluke flying car incident.

Except for the two people mentioned above, it seems that no one else was in the building at the time of the bizarre accident.

The Santa Ana Police Department will not confirm or deny any charges have been filed related to this incident, but confirmed they plan to release a statement in the near future.

And you thought wild stunts with cars landing in the second story window only happened in Hollywood…
