The car landed in someone's backyard.

"(I) saw the black car in their yard with a guy laying on the ground flat on your stomach. He had been flown from the car and there were two other guys pinned in the car. They were screaming, 'get us out get us out,!' You know? I called 911 right away of course and the police vehicles started coming," said one witness.

Officials say everyone survived. Police say the man and toddler were not too seriously injured.

The homeowner where the car landed says this is the second time a crash like this has happened.
