CLEVELAND -- A man and woman are dead after a car drove into a wooded area and landed in the second floor bedroom of a house on Cleveland's east side early Friday morning.

The accident was reported around 12:30 a.m. on Wade Park Avenue, near E. 61st Street.

Investigators believe the car was traveling west at a high rate of speed on Wade Park Avenue. It traveled into the wooded area at a dead-end near E. 63rd Street.

The car became airborne at some point and crashed into the second floor bedroom of a house on E. 61st Street.

Officials are still trying to determine how the car was thrown into the air.

Just after noon, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner identified the victims as Willa Guy, 33, of Cleveland, and Michael Carter, 49, of Wickliffe.

The man and woman both died at the scene. The woman was driving the car and the man was the passenger, officials said.

The engine and transmission of the late model Hyundai Sonata remain in the bedroom. The car is reportedly split in half.

One man was inside the house at the time of the crash, but he was downstairs in the kitchen and was not injured.

A small white dog was found peering out of the hole in the bedroom. Officials say the dog was in the car during the crash and needed to be rescued. It survived the crash with no apparent injuries.

Police and fire officials are investigating.
