Police Cruiser Catches Amazing 100+ MPH Crash on Video
Ohio State Trooper Catches Horrific 100+ MPH Crash on Cruiser Cam
Pontiac Firebird, doing in excess of 100 MPH, speeds past Ohio State Trooper, hits guard rail, goes air bound, and bursts into pieces as it slams into overpass. The car breaks apart into three main pieces of wreckage. Amazingly, the driver is listed in critical condition but is alive.
The crash shut down the southbound lanes of I-675 for six hours. Driver Brennan S. Eden, 19, of Mason, Ohio, lost control of his car and slammed into the concrete pillar of a bridge south of Indian Ripple Road about 7:15 a.m.
Impact with the pillars broke the car into three pieces and Brennan was ejected.
Witnesses stated that moments before the crash, Brennan was passing other drivers at speeds of at least 100 mph. Brennan crashed when he drove off the left side of the roadway in an attempt to pass a Sugarcreek Twp. police car. The above video footage was caught by the officer’s cruiser camera.
Police said Brennan was responsive and conscious after the accident. He was flown to Miami Valley Hospital by Careflight where he was last listed in critical condition.
“He is very lucky to still be alive at this point,” said Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Marty Fellure.
Officer Fellure said they are still investigating the crash in attempts to determine the driver’s exact speed and the reasons for his out of control driving.
