DI­GEST

Daily Trust - - YOUTH VILLE -

When Joyce Kings­ley heard “ka­boom” while at her Michi­gan home, she im­me­di­ately thought about ex­treme weather.

The 83-year-old needed to look up: A car was parked on the roof of her home af­ter the driver had a med­i­cal prob­lem Mon­day and lost con­trol on In­ter­state 69 in Shi­awassee County in the United States.

Kings­ley’s home, about 20 miles north­east of Lans­ing, is built next to a hill, and the roof is nearly level with the ground, The Ar­gus-Press of Owosso re­ported.

“I was just watch­ing TV in­side. I had it up pretty loud — but this was much louder,” Kings­ley said.

State po­lice said the car went through sev­eral bushes, trees and a fence be­fore stop­ping on the roof. The driver was treated for low blood sugar but wasn’t hurt.

“The driver is ex­tremely lucky,” Trooper Ben Row­ell said.

Kings­ley plans to put a tarp over the dam­aged roof un­til it can be fixed.

“It could’ve been a lot worse,” she said. “I’m glad ev­ery­one is all right.”
