A car that ran into a road divider in California ended up hurtling 60ft into the air before crashing into the top floor of a building.

Astonishing pictures show a Nissan sedan hanging out of the dentist office in Santa Ana after the crash at around 5.25am on Sunday morning.

Guests at a motel next door woke up to the sound of the car hitting the office complex, which was thankfully closed at the time.
