Auto crashes into second floor of Calif. office building

A car dangles off the second floor of a building after speeding into a median and going airborne according to authorities in Santa Ana California

Public Works responded to examine the integrity of the structure and LA County Fire responded with a larger wrecker truck to remove the vehicle from the structure.

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.

The police in Santa Ana, California reported that the auto tripped on a median right outside the building and went airborne for about 60 feet ultimately crashing into the Dental Office on the 17th street.

To rescue the trapped person, "USAR was able to access the passenger door".

"The auto was coming down the street right here at a very high speed and I heard, I was putting gas, I heard a big boom and what it hit, it hit that, it hit there and it got launched", Sanchez said.

There were two people inside the auto and both of them managed to escape uninjured. However, both sustained with minor injuries.

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

The Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) said the driver hit a center divider, catapulting the vehicle into the air. The fire caused major damage to the home and was extinguished after 18 minutes.

The driver, not yet publicly named by police, later admitted that he had been using narcotics.
