MILTON, Fla. (AP) -- A man watching a basketball game on TV in his bedroom was killed when a car crashed through the roof of his home, authorities said.

William Christopher Villar, 22, was trapped under the car for three hours until a crane was able to lift it off him, Milton Police Sgt. Jimmy Barnes told the Pensacola News Journal for Saturday's editions.

Authorities said they received a call Thursday night about a possible drunk driver. An officer tried to stop driver Beverly Grimditch, 50, of Navarre, but she took off, Barnes said.

Grimditch's car hit the curb, went over a fence and cartwheeled on the roof of the home Villar shared with his parents and two brothers, Barnes said. It was unknown what speed she was driving.

Police were investigating the incident. Grimditch has not been charged.

"I've been working crashes 24 years, and this is the most bizarre I've ever seen," said Barnes, a longtime friend of the Villar family. "This is a very sad situation, and it goes to the bottom of my heart."
