Shocking images reveal how a driver ‘intentionally’ crashed his car into the second story of a Pennsylvania home after flying off the road. 

Firefighters admitted they had to ‘think outside the box’ to bring the vehicle down, while the driver was transported to a local hospital after the crash on Sunday. 

The Junction Fire Company said it arrived on the scene within minutes of the accident, which occurred in Decatur Township in Mifflin County. 

It is still unclear how exactly the eyebrow-raising collision happened, but Junction Fire reportedly noted that there is a culvert – a large tunnel under the road – beside the house. 

However, Pennsylvania State Police found during their investigation that the crash was ‘an intentional act,’ and ‘charges are pending’ against the driver, according to ABC27

A spokesperson said the crash was the result ‘of the driver attempting to inflict self-harm due to a mental health episode.’

After racing to the scene after reports of a ‘vehicle accident’, firefighters astonishingly found the driver already out of the suspended car. 

Junction Fire said they found only one vehicle involved in the accident, and they quickly worked to stabilize the house to prevent any further damage. 

Crews also covered the huge hole with tarpaulin due to fears of an incoming storm.  

‘The crew had to think outside the box in order to temporarily stabilize the vehicle until it was time to remove it,’ a spokesperson told FOX Television Stations

The service shared the stunning photographs of the rescue to Facebook, which spread rapidly as people couldn’t believe how the car landed in the home. 

Among the images was the room where the car finished, which appeared to be a home gym as a treadmill sat in the center of the room covered in dust from the wreck. 

The homeowners were also reportedly evaluated after the crash, however it is not known how many people were in the property when the car flew into the home.  None were taken to the hospital.

‘Rescue Company took in a vehicle into a structure in Decatur Township this evening,’ the department said in the post detailing the crash. 

‘Chief 17 arrived on scene within minutes to find one vehicle into the second floor with the patient out of the vehicle. 

‘The Rescues crew stabilized the house and helped the homeowners put a tarp on the hole due to upcoming storms.’

Junction Fire added that the efforts took several squads and fire engines, as well as help from other departments including the police, to eventually bring the car down. 

The driver was transported to Geising Lewistown Hospital.
