Fire officials say two teenagers were travelling down a nearby highway in a Chevrolet Malibu just before the crash occurred.

The car swerved off Legends Parkway, smashed into a tree, rolled end-over-end down an embankment, crashed through a wrought iron fence, “saucered” through the air and then plowed into the roof of the house below.

The car smashed through the roof of the master bedroom and stopped with its nose buried in a bathroom on the first floor. The homeowners were sleeping about 10 feet from where the car came in, officials said.
