Magnificent Men In Flying Machines

A California driver was headed down a highway in Yuba City, minding his own business, when he saw a vehicle jumping over an embankment and onto the highway. The incident was captured on dashcam video.

The ‘Fast and Furious’ crew’s got nothing on this driver … who is miraculously alive after her car flew through the air — nearly clipping power lines — and crashed back down on a highway.

The video was captured by the dash camera of another driver who had impeccable timing. Last Wednesday, they were driving on Highway 99 in Yuba City, CA … when suddenly a white compact vehicle came flying over an embankment!!!

It looked exactly like a scene out of ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ — but there’s was added danger from power lines!!! Yeah, the car appears to have threaded the needle, narrowly missing the lines as it flew, flipped and smashed down onto the highway.

I’m sure there’s a bizarre backstory to this, but I’m fairly certain I don’t want to hear about it. For the record, the officers claimed alcohol was not an issue, and the guy actually walked out of the hospital the same day. I’m guessing the guy was the impetus for Unbreakable.

You can see the video at the link. It’s certainly… interesting.

  1. Mike AKA Proof – My only guess is they were in shock at what they just saw. Of course, a lot of people aren’t wired like that, and most try to mind their own business.

  2. If you listen to the talk after it happened some of them were afraid they would get hurt, you can hear the guy say you’ll be alright. More concerned with themselves getting a scratch than going to help someone.

    1. Sorry. I’m just not built like that. If there’s a possibility, say, the car might explode, then there’s even more reason to get the driver/passengers out of the car as quickly as possible!

  3. I drive through this area fairly regularly and I am still amazed how it happened. It was a woman driver that had been in a hit and run and was trying to get away at high speed. Crazy she not only survived, but walked out of the hospital soon after. I am guessing the witnesses were in shock at what they had just seen.
