USA Today reports on a strange car accident in which a man’s car ended up on a neighbor’s roof. In a neighborhood in California where many driveways are built on steep inclines, the man lost control of his car, and it ended up on the roof of a neighbor who was downhill from him. The driver reportedly had a mechanical failure. Neither the driver, nor his wife who was in the car with him, suffered any injury on the incident. A crane had to be used to remove the car from the roof, which was slightly damaged. No one inside the home was injured, either.
While this particular case is almost comical, and fortunately no one was hurt, it is not unusual for cars to crash into buildings and other standing structures. In many cases, these accidents are in fact caused by mechanical failure, such as brake failure, tire blowouts, and others. These accidents are obviously unexpected, and sometimes result in extremely serious injuries to passengers in the car as well as occupants of the buildings. When the accident is caused by a defective car part, it may be possible to hold the manufacturer liable for damages caused by their negligence.
