A car sits upside-down on the front lawn of a house in South Austin

Oltorf is a major East-West street in South Austin. Sometimes in rains in Austin. When it rains, the roads usually get slippery. I arrived on this scene as the police were showing up and left just as the tow truck arrived; it seems no one was injured. Somehow this car made it from Oltorf, over the tree lane and sidewalk, and onto the front lawn, without leaving any marks.  The only apparent contact the vehicle made between its position on the previously discussed road to the aforementioned lawn seems to be the speed limit sign. I imagine it also did this upside down. I don’t think this kind of thing can be good for your grass.
