Car goes airborne, slams into 2nd floor of Santa Ana office


Authorities say two people escaped serious injuries when the car they were in went airborne and slammed into the second floor of a dental office in Santa Ana.

The Orange County Fire Authority says the Nissan Altima hit a center divider early Sunday, soared into the air and plowed into the top floor of the two-story structure.

Photos show the sedan's front half wedged inside the building while the back half hangs about 10 feet above a sidewalk.

Officials say a small fire injured one person who managed to get out of the car unassisted. Authorities had to rescue the second person.

Crews will use a crane to remove the car from the building.

Investigators will try to determine if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
