Video: Airborne car crashes into overpass, splits in three pieces during morning commute
The morning commute took a turn for the terrifying in Mason, Ohio, on Monday morning. About 7:15 a.m., commuters stuck in traffic watched as a car barreled down the inside lane of the highway at speeds of about 100 mph. Passing a police car, the speeding vehicle veered onto the grassy median, catapulted off the guardrail and slammed into an overpass. The car broke into three pieces, and the entire scene was caught on a police car camera.
Despite the destruction of the car, the driver, Brennan S. Eden, 19, is at the hospital in critical condition. Police said he was conscious after the crash, according to WDTN News.
"He is very lucky to still be alive," Lt. Marty Fellure, an Ohio State Highway patrolman, told WDTN News. "He's a very fortunate man right now."
