Three occupants of an SUV died after it flipped into a house in North Oak Cliff. The house's occupant was unharmed, according to police.
As you can see in the photo, there's a second car lodged in the house. According to various reporters at the scene, that car was parked. When it was hit by the speeding SUV, it was launched into the house, according to witnesses.

"We saw a blue SUV at a high rate of speed coming down our street Waverly -- and just flew through the intersection, hit the white car that was parked there, flew up into the air, pushed the white car into the building. A tremendous explosion. I'm still shook up," Steve Horton, who witnessed the crash from his front porch, told NBC 5.
