Redding said the intersection in front of his house is unsafe and it's not the first time a auto has come barreling onto the property.

The driver was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, and his condition wasn't known.

St. Louis firefighters responded to the call on Sunday and had to carefully remove the man from the roof, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

"Everybody up and down here has had their yards redone", Redding said. He recently retired. Fortunately, he said, he had family and friends who would be able to look out for him. He had just finished paying it off. As a matter of fact, this wasn't the first time a auto has come crashing through their yards.

'I had a auto smash, turn my railing off.

"Everybody up and down here has had their yards redone", he said, adding that numerous parked cars on the street are frequently hit by speeding cars. "I don't know if he had some type of a medical issue that he just lost consciousness and put his foot down on the gas, and it just went flying". It was a tricky operation, according to the newspaper's report, because firefighters aren't accustomed to using climbing ladders while at the same time working to remove someone from a auto.

They are hopeful that the city takes notice of this predicament.

The incident is under investigation.
