Horrific video footage shows a car driving at full speed into a toll plaza, leading to one of the passengers being violently ejected from the vehicle. The crash took place at around 7:15am on June 3 near St. Cloud, Florida in Osceola County.
The driver of the car fails to slow down as it approaches the toll plaza on the Florida Turnpike, according to WESH-TV. The car is seen slamming into a barrier. The impact of the crash sent one of the passenger hurtling what seemed like 20 feet in the air. There was also debris from the car, pieces of which were sent flying into the air and strewn across the toll lane.
The car also appeared to light on fire as it nearly rolled over. Thick plumes of smoke are seen coming out from under the hood of the vehicle. Seconds later, the driver of the car climbs out of the vehicle and walks on his own power, though with an apparent limp. It took a few more seconds before someone realized that the ejected passenger was lying motionless alongside one of the toll booths.
At the end of the 50-second clip, another passenger is seen opening the door. Somehow, all five passengers not only survived the crash, but they have all been treated and released from hospital. The trooper wrote in his report that the driver of the car appeared to be fatigued.
