Exclamation Raw Video: Car Slams Into Church Roof

A man was seriously injured in Germany after losing control of his car and ending up in the roof of a church. The car veered up the embankment like it was a ramp, launching the car into the air and into the roof of the church.

A 23-year-old man is in hospital with serious injuries after his car crashed through a church roof.
The unnamed motorist was driving his Skoda Octavia at high speeds through
villages in Saxony, eastern Germany, when he lost control at a bend.
A police officer watched in horror as the vehicle crashed through a railing and careered up an embankment in the town of Limbach-Oberfrohna.
The car then sailed 100ft through the air and smashed through a church roof.
Firefighters removed the driver from the wreckage, and he was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
They later used a crane to remove the car from the church roof.
Police said the driver was breathalysed but have yet to release his name.
The 10,000 euro Skoda was written off in the incident, and the cost of repairing the church roof is not yet known.

Dude - how fast do you have to be going to get your car to go 100 feet through the air? No wonder the driver lost control.

The Mythbusters sent a car off a ramp at over 70 miles an hour and the ramp was huge. The bump in the video was tiny so this guy was going WAY too fast. Especially with there being snow on the ground.
