Man Captures His Own Car Crash at 70mph

A man driving in heavy rain at 70mph captured the moment his car aquaplaned and rolled off the embankment.

Travis Carpenter had been filming because he practises singing on the routine journey, which takes three to four hours, as a way to pass the time. On this occasion, he also captured something much more terrifying. Thankfully, he sustained no injuries and there wasn't even any damage to the vehicle.

From the Uploader: I was traveling from Indianapolis to Whitewater, WI for a practice weekend with Machine Ultimate. I was going 70mph (speed limit) on I65 north. I travel the 3-4 hours by myself every time and use singing as a way to pass time, and critique it later. At this point I was practicing a nasal type voice on a Casting Crowns song when the crash happened. I was watching the road and saw nothing that caused me to worry. Simply hydroplaned in a heavy rain. My car slid sideways, and then was completely backwards by the time I slid off the road and went down a small hill. I hit a mile marker sign (230) on my way off the road. Here are two of the most amazing parts: I sustained NO injuries. Not even a scratch. And my car took NO mechanical damage and is completely driveable. Only body damage.

Not for the faint-hearted
