Driver Pulls off Insane Stunt on Busy Highway

This is truly some backward thinking.

The Ohio Department of Transportation released traffic camera video on Tuesday showing an SUV navigate through morning rush-hour traffic for more than a mile while in reverse.

Miraculously, the driver was not involved in a crash as he went backward up an onramp to U.S. 33 and then turned onto another road, made his way across an overpass and through another light, then turned into a shopping center parking lot.

A spokesperson with ODOT tells WCMH Channel 4 it's unknown why the driver went so far in reverse, saying the vehicle might have had transmission problems.

It's estimated the driver covered 1.2 miles and it lasted about four minutes.

Canal Winchester is located about 15 miles southeast of Columbus.
