A California man drives onto his neighbor’s roof after he loses control of his Cadillac.

Robert and Galina Wynn were heading out for an evening on the town but didn’t get very far. According to reports, while heading down their steep driveway Robert lost complete control of their vehicle blew through a neighbor’s yard, clipped a house and went airborne — landing on the roof of another house.

Galina Wynn told CNN affiliate KABC that her husband, Robert, couldn’t stop as they turned the corner from their hillside home. There was something wrong with the car, she said.

“As soon as we hit the corner, the airbags deployed and I didn’t even see where we were going from there because the view was obscured,” Wynn said.

The couple’s neighbors were quick to come to their rescue, and help them off the roof. The 80-year-old home owner was startled but not injured.

“There was one person inside the house but not in the area of where the car landed,” said Glendale Fire Batt. Chief Ron Gulli.

The vehicle was taking off of the roof by a large crane that the fire department brought in.

Neighbors told officers Saturday’s incident was the second time the man crashed into a neighbor’s house while trying to drive down his driveway, said Glendale police Sgt. Sean Riley.

“You know I’ve seen other similar collisions. We have a lot of hillsides here in Glendale. But this was very unique that it landed the way it did and didn’t go through the roof of the home and cause some injuries,” Glendale police Lt. Scott Bickle told CNN affiliate KTLA.
