Car lands on roof
A car landed on the rooftop of a Fresno home when the driver lost control and hit a tree, officials said Thursday.

Police say the driver of the car missed a turn and the car hit a tree stump, went airborne and somehow landed right side up on top of the house Wednesday.

The driver fled the scene -- reportedly in his boxer shorts. He was caught by police a short time later.

No one in the house was seriously injured.
