Two people suffered minor injuries in a freakish crash Sunday morning when a vehicle went airborne and slammed into the second floor of a dental office in Santa Ana, California, officials said.
Officers also said that the driver had admitted to using narcotics and that he or she would be admitted to a local hospital for observation. A specialized fire truck from Los Angeles was brought in to extract the vehicle from the dentist's office.
The Santa Ana Police Department added that the driver was driving at a very high rate of speed when their vehicle hit the median.
The auto started a small fire which was quickly extinguished. One person was able to escape the vehicle, while the second person had to be rescued.More news: Detroit Lions Likely To Hire Matt Patricia As Head Coach
