A Glendale man lost control of his vehicle Saturday, sending the car down an embankment and landing on a neighbor's roof.

The incident happened about 5:45 p.m. in 400 block of Audraine Drive in Glendale.

After the vehicle came to a stop on the roof, a neighbor rushed over with a ladder, helping the 60-year-old driver and a female passenger off the home.

"There was a gentleman that was in the house that was home at the time, but he was not hurt," Glendale Fire Department spokesman Carlos Guerrero said.

Authorities used a crane to remove the vehicle.

A preliminary report indicated there was a mechanical issue with the car, according to the Glendale Police Department.
