PALOS VERDES , Calif., Feb. 4 (UPI) -- A California driver's car landed on a roof after spinning out of control near a residential area in Palos Verdes.

Los Angeles County Fire reported to the scene shortly after the incident occurred at 4 p.m. on Wednesday and shared photos of the vehicle on the roof.

Firefighters say the driver suffered from a medical condition that caused him to lose control of the car, hitting two parked vehicles before landing on the roof of the two-story home.

Only the driver was believed to be injured in the crash and he was immediately taken to the hospital in good condition.

A woman was home when the accident occurred, but did not sustain any injuries and was not aware of the car's presence until she was shown by a neighbor.

"You can't believe how dumb it is," she told CBS Los Angeles. "Awful!"

The woman's home sits below the busy Palos Verders Drive and a neighbor said cars have crashed into homes in the area in the past.
