Car lands on church roof


A car has skidded off the road in eastern Germany and landed on the roof of a church.

Police said the vehicle was travelling at high speed when the collision happened in Limbach-Oberfrohna on Sunday.

The 23-year-old driver missed a bend in the road and drove through a railing before careering up an embankment and flying 35 metres through the air.

Emergency workers had to free the man who was taken to hospital for treatment.
