A car catapulted through the roof of a house in Missouri on Sunday morning, landing just feet from residents who were asleep in their bed.
The incredible crash happened in a quiet residential street in the small city of Eureka near St. Louis.
The accident occurred at around 1:30am when the two teens were on their way home from a graduation party.
They somehow lost control of the white Chevrolet Malibu car they were driving on a highway that runs parallel to the rear of the home.

After coming off the road, the vehicle went up a ramp, rolled down an embankment and flipped over a fence sending it flying directly into the roof of the house.
It came to rest six feet from the end of the bed where the homeowners were fast asleep.
The driver and passenger then got out of the car, and walked out unscathed through the master bedroom and then the front door.
Amazingly, nobody was injured in either the car or at the house.

‘They were truly lucky. It’s an extreme success story that everybody survived this with the potentials there could have been. There were two homeowners in the master bedroom and children sleeping downstairs,’ said Deputy Chief William Stamberger from the Eureka Fire Department to Fox 2.
‘There could have been a great amount of disaster,’ he added as he surveyed the damage.
The residents and owners of the car who have not yet been identified, say they will let their respective insurance companies see about how to best deal with the damage.
The homeowners say they are grateful their family are safe.
