Car Crashes Through Roof of Texas Business

December 19, 2011

Police responding to a burglar alarm found a car crashed through the roof of a Santa Fe, Texas, business.

Investigators say the car was traveling at a high rate of speed about 2 a.m. Saturday when the driver failed to negotiate a turn. KTRK-TV reports that the vehicle left the roadway and traveled up a railroad track embankment, which caused it to go airborne. It flew about 100 feet through the air and crashed through the roof.

The blue sedan landed nose-first inside Gulf Coast Aerobic Services, causing more than $25,000 in damage.

The driver of the car was gone when police arrived. Detectives say they are confident the driver will be found and arrested.

Santa Fe is south of Houston.
