Wis. Woman Survives Landing On Garage Roof

TWO RIVERS, Wis. (AP) — A 23-year-old woman flew out her back window and landed on a garage roof after she lost control of her car in southeastern Wisconsin.

According to Two Rivers police, the woman was speeding and swerving in and out of traffic when she lost control Monday.

Police say she struck the median, went airborne, crossed a lane and then rolled four times with the car stopping in a front yard.

Police believe the woman was ejected through the back window that was already broken, flew through the branches of a pine tree and landed on the garage roof.

The Herald Times Reporter reports she climbed off, with help from bystanders, and tried walking away.

But paramedics took her to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Officials believe alcohol was a factor.

    “Officials believe alcohol was a factor.”

    Yeah that might be a reasonable conclusion here, I’d say… What is WRONG with people??

    Let’s hope that young woman know’s she has had a once in a lifetime save and straightens up her act from this point. She could have killed others as well.

    Two Rivers is not southeastern Wisconsin!

      Well it is south and east of Lambeau Field. Maybe it is just perspective.

    I hope she is given the several tickets/fines she deserves and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Pretty sure there would be a little more outrage if she’d have hurt someone else and by the sounds of it, swerving in an out of traffic, she very easily could have killed another.

  • eastside_evil

    I don’t think a Prius can even go fast enough to lose control of it…

    If anything would go viral on Youtube, a video of this would!

    All I can think of is the scene in Animal House where the coed gets catapulted off the float, flies through an open window and lands on a bed upon which a teenage boy is reclining. The kid looks at the girl who has just landed on the bed next to him, looks up, and says “Thanks, God.”

    I see people speeding and swerving in and out of traffic every day on I-35W, from Burnsville to NE Minneapolis.
