Talk about getting a rude wake-up call.

That's what one house occupant in the coastal town of Durban, South Africa, received on Thursday (July 2) — when a car driver smashed through the roof.

The driver was at the outskirts of the city when he claimed he went over "a ramp of some sort" and went flying.

That was how he ended up crashing both car and house in Kwamakhutha Township.

What's even more amazing? The driver was able to walk away with no major injuries.

The person sleeping in the house was also unhurt.

Emergency medical provider ER24 reported the driver explaining that he had gone "over a ramp of some sort", which led him to collide with the building.

"It's really kind of miraculous," ER24 spokesman Pieter Rossouw told the BBC.

 The cause of this incident remains unknown.
