A speeding car skidded on an icy south Minneapolis street, went airborne and nose-dived onto two unoccupied vehicles parked behind a home, authorities said.
The crash occurred about 2:30 a.m. near E. 42nd Street and S. Oakland Avenue.
Police were notified about six hours later, went to the scene immediately and saw a nearly vertical Nissan on top of a car and a pickup truck in a garage driveway.
The driver fled and remains at large, police said.
"It is believed ... the Nissan was traveling at a high rate of speed and hit an area of ice and lost control, sending the vehicle airborne," a police statement read.
Homeowner Tom Taggatz didn't know about his misfortune until well after it happened.
"I wasn't home when it happened," he said. "I was Up North fishing. I have three damaged vehicles and my garage is damaged. I don't even know if the guy [driving] has insurance."
Steve Crowley, who lives in the neighborhood, said he was driving by about 9:10 a.m. "and saw it out of the corner of my eye. I was puzzled. It looked like someone just dropped it from a crane."
An online fundraising effort has been started to help Taggatz pay for the damage.
