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

The crash caused a small fire that injured a person, who managed to escape from the auto without assistance from emergency services, the Orange County Fire Authority said.

Firefighters responded to the scene and extinguished the blaze, then extricated a second person who was trapped inside the sedan.

The auto reportedly crossed three lanes before hitting a centre divider, causing it to fly through the air and land inside the two-storey building.

The Los Angeles County fire department used a specialized forklift and wrecker to remove the auto, the police said.

Horner said he does not have any more information on the occupants, but Santa Ana police said the driver admitted to having used narcotics. The vehicle crash caused a small fire at the place.

Both driver and passenger survived the crash, suffering only minor injuries.
