EUREKA, Missouri — A car lost control in Eureka on Saturday night, rolled down an embankment, flipped over a fence and crashed front-end-first through the roof of a house.

Fortunately, there were no injuries. 

The driver and passenger were able to walk away unscathed through the master bedroom.

Occupants of the house were sleeping in the home at the time of the crash, Eureka FD Division Chief Scott Barthelmass confirmed.
