Police are investigating a bizarre accident that happened on the North Side early Saturday.

Officers at the scene said police received a call around 1:15 a.m. Saturday about a vehicle hitting a building near the intersection of Blanco Road and Fulton Street. When they arrived, they found a building that had apparently been hit by vehicle, but there was no vehicle at the scene.

While the officers were preparing a report, they heard a thumping noise and then spotted a vehicle with two flat tires traveling north on Blanco Road at a high rate of speed. The vehicle slammed into a curb and went airborne, landing in front of another building on Blanco Road.

The officers pulled the driver out of the vehicle. The man, who is in his 20s, was taken by EMS to University Hospital with a large laceration to his jaw.
