Just imagine you are a crackhead, being pursued by police. You consider a decision tree:
1. Pull car over and surrender.
2. Go stealth mode, turn car lights off, and escape police.
3. Land car on roof of home, disappear.
A deal in North Carolina took door 2, and when failed, went 3.
According to WIS-TV, an officer with Columbia police tailed the vehicle after witnessing what looked like a drug deal. The driver took off, driving erratically without headlights on.
The officer followed the vehicle and eventually came upon it wrecked on the roof of a suburban home. The suspect was nowhere to be found, but investigators found crack cocaine and cash in the vehicle.
Homeowner Steve Taylor told WIS that he was awakened by a loud bang around 2:30 a.m., and was told by police in his yard that there was a car on the roof.
"I stepped out into the yard and looked back up, and there was a car on the roof." Taylor said. "It was alarming as you can imagine... I still didn't believe it, once I saw it."
