At first glance I thought the oil smudge was blood, glad you caught that...

Makes you wonder what happened. Kid was flying down the highway and saw the cop, slammed his breaks and went off the road?

I love speculation when there'* a news story that can be quoted.

Quote:
GREENE COUNTY, Ohio -- Beavercreek police said the man driving the car that crashed on I-675 Monday morning, was arrested and released shortly before he slammed into the cement wall of an overpass.

That driver, 19-year-old Brennan Eden of Mason, was taken to Miami Valley Hospital in critical condition.

According to Beavercreek police, Eden was arrested for prohibition, drug paraphernalia and drug abuse after he was found in his car with a teen girl in a parking lot near the corner of Beaver Vu Dr. and North Fairfield Rd.

Police said they also found Eden to be in the possession of an unopened can of alcohol, a trace of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia inside the car. The juvenile girl was arrested for prohibition and released to the custody of her father.

Eden was cited for his violations and released. Police said he was cooperative throughout the investigation. The officer conducted a field sobriety test and he said there was no indication that Eden was under the influence of alcohol at the time.

He was released prior to 7 a.m. and within 15 minutes, Eden was involved in the crash.

At 7:15 a.m., the dashboard camera of a Sugercreek Township Police Officer'* cruiser captured Eden driving at a high rate of speed to the left side of I-675 near Indian Ripple Rd. The video shows the car striking a culvert and flew into the air, then hitting the Wagner Road Bridge overpass. The car broke into many pieces and Eden was ejected.

State troopers in Xenia are using that cruiser camera video to investigate the crash and determine how fast Eden was driving at the time of the crash.
Several witnesses said they believe the man was driving at least 100 miles per hour.

"I mean, I never seen a car fly like that," said Rufus Thacker. He had driven a big rig down I-675 everyday for years. However, he had never seen anything like that. "He said hit probably over 100 miles an hour and I just happened to see the car airborne and break up in four pieces." Thacker said.

The State Highway Patrol said Eden was ejected onto a highway shoulder. Troopers say he was alert and conscious after the crash and rushed to Miami Valley Hospital by Careflight.

I can't believe the driver survived that... The video shows the car breaking apart mid air, how the guy survived is beyond my comprehension. Maybe all that safety engineering works.... but for a airborne vehicle crashing into concrete bridge at 100 (mol) mph...... who designs for that.

Way I see it, the air bag saved him from the initial impact damage and he was ejected and luck came into play. If he had been wearing the seat belt and not ejected the forces in play could have killed him itself the way the car came apart. Whatever the real scenario Dan'* right. It was indeed luck. The truck driver that came to his rescue stated on the news report the guy actually tried to push himself up off the ground before he collapsed.
