Dude Crashes SUV into Roof, Lives to Tell the Tale

Is it Festivus? Because there sure was a Festivus miracle early Sunday morning on the north side of the county.

Police say a 24-year-old man was likely speeding (ya think?) when he hit a sloped embankment about 2:15 a.m. Sunday and went airborne.

His SUV clipped the roof of one house and then thudded through the roof of the house next door.

No one was seriously hurt.

"I said, 'What's going on?' And he said, 'Hurry up, there's a car in your roof,'" one of the residents told KPRC.

The driver's name was not released; he suffered slight injuries in the crash, which is still being investigated by cops.

They're looking into the possibility that alcohol played a part, always a good lead to consider when dealing with someone who lands a car on a roof at two in the morning.
