Lt. Scott Bicko, with Glendale police, explains what happened when a 60-year-old driver apparently lost control while traveling down a steep cliff. The driver and his passenger skid across a neighbor s lawn and ended up perching their Cadillac on the roof of another neighbor's home. Tena Ezzeddine reports for the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on March 24, 2013.
A Glendale man lost control of his vehicle Saturday, sending the car down an embankment and landing on a neighbor's roof.
The incident happened about 5:45 p.m. in 400 block of Audraine Drive in Glendale.
After the vehicle came to a stop on the roof, a neighbor rushed over with a ladder, helping the 60-year-old driver and a female passenger off the home.
"There was a gentleman that was in the house that was home at the time, but he was not hurt," Glendale Fire Department spokesman Carlos Guerrero said.
Authorities used a crane to remove the vehicle.
A preliminary report indicated there was a mechanical issue with the car, according to the Glendale Police Department.
