Speeding vehicle goes airborne, gets stuck in California dental office

An L.A. County Fire Department Urban Search and Rescue crane lifts a Nissan Altima out of the second floor of a dentist office in Santa Ana on Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018.

Two people suffered minor injuries in a weird crash Sunday morning when a auto went airborne and slammed into the second floor of a dental office in Santa Ana, officials said.

Police responded to the 300 block of E. 17th St. on the report of a working vehicle into building collision just north of downtown Santa Ana.

The Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) said the driver hit a center divider, catapulting the vehicle into the air.

The Santa Ana Police Department said that the driver was going at a very high rate of speed when they hit the center median.

The OCFA tweeted that the auto "went airborne and landed into the building".

The people in the vehicle had minor injuries and small fire that resulted from the crash was quickly extinguished.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department brought in a wrecker truck to remove the vehicle from the building, and Public Works is examining the structure's integrity. He or she was later removed from the vehicle.

Captain Stephen Horner of the Orange County Fire Authority said that a small fire was immediately extinguished.
