Police in Santa Fe, Texas are currently searching for a man who catapulted his Subaru WRX through the roof of a local business. Police say 20-year-old Roy Morales was traveling around 90 miles per hour at two in the morning when he blew through a dead-end street and crossed a set of raised train tracks.

The tracks sent the vehicle airborne over a distance of 100 feet before the car came crashing through the roof of a local septic business. Realizing he had both literally and figuratively found himself in a world of crap, Morales fled the scene and later called the police to report his vehicle stolen.

At that point, police were able to coax a confession from Morales, who now faces potential charges ranging from reckless driving to false reporting of a crime. Morales has yet to actually turn himself in.

Michael Robinson, the owner of Gulf Coast Aerobic Services, says Morales' stunt inflicted around $25,000 worth of damage, but that he's grateful no one was hurt in the incident. That includes the would-be stunt driver. Hit the jump to watch a local news report.

        I went from a Scion tC to a 2011 WRX and my insurance went down. Figure that out. Not that it's "cheap" of course... but cheapER.

      Sometimes when you take a leap of faith, you find yourself face down in a pool of sh*t.

      Just because you're in a WRX doesn't mean you turn into Travis Pastrana. Idiot d-bag. Le'ts hope he goes to prison.

        He's an idiot, sure, but prison? Really? For material damage?

          I know right. I think it's safe to say this guy will want to refrain from driving like an idiot for a while, and has learned a valuable lesson. Prison seems a little extreme, as I think catapulting your car 100 feet and going right through the roof of a septic business along with all of the fines, the likelihood of losing his license, destroying his car, the embarrassment, and the amount he will pay for insurance are punishment enough. It is ironic where he landed though. LOL

      His worst crime? Not having the decency to get someone film his stupid a$$ as he sets the world record for jumping into a poop house using a railroad track as a launch method. 10 points for demonstrating projectile motion with a ton of steel, 10 points for a completely ironic landing.

      sucks for all involved, but for a moment I bet it was a blast and/or fear of death moment.

      You know, I've heard Subaru's Boxer motors are popular in small, light aircraft for their small size and torque but this just takes it to a whole new level.

      Clearly Red Bull is missing an opportunity to drop a logo on that Scooby

        No, they actually sponsor Citroen. You're thinking of Rockstar...
