FRESNO, CA (KGPE/CNN) - It wasn't Santa's sleigh that recently landed on a Fresno, CA roof.

A car … yes, you read that correctly … landed on the roof of an apartment complex early Wednesday. Police say the driver of the stolen car was speeding, lost control, went airborne and came down on the roof.

Despite having a broken leg, the driver took off on foot. Police caught up with him a short time later. He's facing charges of auto theft, hit and run and running from police, in addition to a warrant already out on him for other charges.

Officers called in a crane to get the car down.

No one inside the building was hurt.
