CLARK, NJ - One Clark family thought they heard a storm brewing while they were settling in at home around 8 p.m..   It became apparent something much bigger was happening closer to home as a car flew by their front window on the way to their roof.

“It sounded like thunder and then all of a sudden I saw this big white thing fly up passed the front window and hit the roof,” said a female homeowner.    “My husband and son had just come in before this happened, they were just outside in front of the house, we are so lucky.”

Clark police, fire department and emergency squad responded to the scene.

According to Fire Chief Frank Cerasa, it appears a  late model white Mercedes sedan heading west on Gertrude Street broke through a retaining wall by the corner of Richard Street, damaging a service van and then careening through a minivan also in the driveway of a home.  

The minivan was flipped onto its side as the Mercedes was projected over it and into the roof of the home before ultimately landing on the lawn facing in the direction from which it came, Cerasa said. 

Crowds of neighbors gathered to view a scene that seemed more typical of a highway collision than a quiet side street.  The accident is under investigation. 

No one inside the dwelling was injured.  The driver of the Mercedes was taken to an area hospital by ambulance.
