Louis Fire Department's deputy chief of operations, told the Post-Dispatch it was like nothing he had ever encountered as a firefighter.

The vehicle landed on a one-story house in the city's northwest side in the 5900 block of Lillian Avenue at around 12:40 p.m.

"The good thing is, I'm alive", said Redding, who recently retired after spending the last 22 years as a restaurant and bar manager at a local country club, according to the Post-Dispatch.

Thankfully, Redding was nowhere near the scene of the crash.

Redding, meanwhile, was left with a home that may never be habitable again. Neighbors said it's not uncommon for drivers to ignore the stop signs. He said the home was insured.

Redding said his house means everything to him.

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.

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

Dep. Chief Arras said neighbors complained that people drive too fast through the neighborhood all the time and even told him that there was another time that a vehicle landed on the roof of a home in that neighborhood, but the teenage driver was able to walk away. Arras said they proceeded carefully.

"I had a auto smash, turn my railing off", Jones said.

"It's a blessing because God said it's not your time", Jones said. I'll talk to my insurance people and we'll just take it one step at a time'. That's exactly what happened Sunday afternoon.

The incident is under investigation.
