Miraculously, the woman survived this spectacular crash.
Last month, Toyota launched a GR Supra 100 feet in the air for a tongue-in-cheek commercial, and now it looks like someone tried to recreate this stunt in a Toyota Camry with dramatic results. In Yuba, California, a truck driver's dashcam recorded the scene of a shocking crash. The road ahead is quiet when suddenly a Toyota Camry careers off the road, launches off the embankment, and flies through the air.
The Camry then slams head-on into the pavement, catapulting the car across the road as it flips end over end before it comes to a rest on its roof in front of the oncoming truck. Luckily, the truck wasn't driving very fast and was able to stop in time. It looks like a stunt for a Hollywood movie.
You can hear the truck driver's family scream in shock as they can't believe what they just witnessed. Speaking with CBS Sacramento, Brian Conejo, who works at Mechanical and Irrigation Solutions, estimates the car caught around 50 feet of air - The Dukes of Hazzard would be proud.
"They came flying straight through here. There's a really hard left-hand turn up here," said Conejo. "They failed to make that turn, just kept going straight and literally went flying over the whole overpass. It looks like they pretty much threaded the needle between the power lines."
Before the crash happened, the woman driver had been involved in a hit and run accident after driving backward on Highway 99 and exiting an on-ramp. Judging from the video, it looks like she was driving a lot faster than the road's 25 mph speed limit - Conejo estimates the Camry was being driven at 80-100 mph.
Miraculously, the woman driver of the Toyota survived the spectacular crash and only suffered minor injuries, which is a testament to the Camry's safety. It's also fortunate the flying Camry didn't take out the power lines and cause a fire.
