PALU, INDONESIA - OCTOBER 05: A damaged car on a house after being hit by the tsunami on October 5, 2018 in Palu, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. The death toll from last weeks earthquake and tsunami has risen to at least 1,558 but widely expected to rise as officials said on Friday the number of victims of the liquefaction could be up to a thousand. Power had returned to parts of the city and fuel shipments have begun to flow back but some affected towns remain inaccessible with the infrastructure badly damaged. A tsunami triggered by a magnitude 7.5 earthquake slammed into Indonesia's coastline on the island of Sulawesi which destroyed or damaged over 70,000 homes as tensions remain high with desperate survivors trying to secure basics like clean water and fuel for generators.

A driver in Larchwood, Iowa is very lucky to be alive after crashing his car into a house at a speed so fast, the car flew 125 feet in the air and landed on the roof! Lyon County Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep said, “I couldn’t believe it! I never thought I would see a car sticking out of a roof!”

Authorities say the driver was northbound on Highway 9 when he missed a curve. The vehicle hit a ditch, then vaulted over a street, and continued airborne for 125 feet before smashing into the roof of a house.

Two miracles here: nobody was home at the time and the driver managed to survive. Police say the posted speed limit is 35 mph but the car had to be going at least 115 mph to do what it did. The driver has been identified as 25-year-old Irrael Hildago from Sioux Falls. The extent of his injuries has not been released. Authorities say charges are pending.
