Police are investigating the circumstances of how a Cadillac ended up atop a home in Glendale Saturday.

While police initially reported that the 66-year-old driver of the 2012 Cadillac told them his brakes failed, investigators are also looking into whether he accidentally accelerated or was driving too fast for road conditions, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. The driver lives in the neighborhood, he added.

No one was seriously injured when the Glendale man's car landed about 5:43 p.m. on the home's roof in the 400 block of Audraine Drive.

Police received a call from the driver via OnStar — a security and navigation system found in some vehicles — regarding the collision, Lorenz said.

A crane was eventually used to remove the Cadillac from the roof.
