Steal a car, get into an accident. Seems like just karma, right? Perhaps. Landing the stolen car on top of a house might just be a little too much karma.
A teen driving a stolen car was ejected from the vehicle during an accident that occurred shortly after it was taken.
The accident occurred early last Tuesday in southwest Atlanta. The teen lost control of the vehicle, which then landed on top of a home.
Atlanta Police Lt. Dorian Graham said that the teen had been speeding down Maxwell Drive when he lost control. The car then went airborne, tearing down tree limbs, power lines, and mailboxes.
Graham admitted that he’d never seen anything like it. The teen was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
The owner of the car, Ebony Thomas-Knight, learned her vehicle’s fate just after the crash. A friend contacted her and asked if that was her car on the roof of the southwest Atlanta home.
Thomas-Knight was in town on business from New Jersey. The car had been stolen Sunday night, just five miles from where the accident occurred. It took Thomas-Knight several calls to get the police to take a report.
Thomas-Knight would be driving back to New Jersey on Tuesday in a rental car.
The SUV clipped and damaged multiple homes before coming to rest on top of a house in the 2400 block of Maxwell Drive. The teen driver was the only one injured in the accident.
