The police are blaming driver fatigue for the video below, which shows a car barreling toward a turnpike plaza and striking a lane divider at full speed. The driver is ejected and thrown a long distance, but somehow — SOMEHOW — survived the accident. You can also see a passenger emerge from the smoke and fire, a little wobbly on his feet. The other THREE passengers in the car were also OK. All 5 were treated and released from the hospital.
I don’t know how someone survives this.
A crash at a turnpike toll plaza in Central Florida was so violent that it catapulted a passenger from the car and sent him flying across the pay lanes.
The ejected man miraculously survived, and even was released from the hospital after treatment.
The crash happened last Sunday near St. Cloud in Osceola County, reports WESH 2 News.
Newly released video from the toll plaza contains a warning about graphic footage. The clip shows a car speeding toward the toll booth, flying through poles, then striking a barrier. Look closely and you can see a man flying from the vehicle before landing mere inches from a yellow pole.
The crashed SUV caught fire, with smoke pouring out, doors open, another occupant staggering out. A toll worker walks over to investigate and then sees the seemingly unconscious man lying motionless on the ground next to another vehicle that is stopped at the booth.
The Florida Highway Patrol told the Orlando station that all five people in the vehicle were taken to the hospital, treated and released.
The trooper wrote in his report that the accident appeared to be related to driver fatigue, adds the WESH report.
No need to guess on this one. We’re just glad no one was killed!
HELLO, MONDAY! If your start to the week needs a little kick in the pants, don’t look to this guys girlfriend.
While trying to hide his significant other from the police, this guy decided that the best possible place would be a plastic tote. I can’t blame him, that’s the last place I would look for a live, human girl. However, the police know this girl because an altercation from 2015 caused her to lose both of her getaway sticks.
Well this one is a doozy. It’s like when you’re watching an episode of your favorite show and then all of the sudden there is a crossover moment and your other favorite show has been combined with your original favorite show and you just sit there and basque in the favorite showness of it all.
I’ve gotten pissed at other drivers before. Actually, I do it almost daily. I don’t think I’ve ever reached the level of getting a baseball bat out and using it on another human being pissed. However, for these two women, this seemed like a logical action to let this other lady know that they did not appreciate her driving techniques.
