Patch reports that police say the vehicle, which was reportedly traveling at high speed when the driver lost control, sending the car up over the median and through the air.

As unusual as this may seem, this isn’t the first instance of a car colliding with the second story of a building. Early this year, a Nissan Altima crashed into the second story of a dentist’s office in California, but that event caused no injuries.
