    A man who suffered a medical problem while driving crashed into a parked car which launched the Lexus onto a roof in Palos Verdes Estates Wednesday, Palos Verdes police officials said.

    The collision occurred around 4 p.m. in the 500 block of Palos Verdes Drive West. The Lexus crashed on top of a detached garage.

    The Lexus driver veered into a yard and then struck a parked car at the home.

    The force of the crash launched the Lexus onto the roof of the orange tile roof garage.

    Firefighters extracted the man from the Lexus and transported him to the hospital.

    He was treated primarily for the medical emergency rather than any injuries in the crash.

    Crews had to remove the Lexus from the garage's roof using a crane.
