FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Fresno police say a car ended up on the roof of an apartment after its driver lost control on a curve and was launched over landscaping rocks.
The crash occurred around 1 a.m. Wednesday. Police tell KFSN-TV
the driver, 26-year-old Benjamin Tucker, had stolen the car from a
nearby home and suffered a broken leg when he jumped from the roof
after the crash.
He was arrested about a quarter mile away on suspicion of hit-and-run and running away from an officer.
Ralph White, who lives in the apartment with his family, said he awoke to falling debris and smoke and ran to a neighbor's house to
call police. No one inside the apartment was injured.
A towing company had to use a crane to get the car down.
