In a dramatic video of a car crash in Slovakia, a BMW rammed into an elevated fixture on a road's hard shoulder, flying through the air before it hit the top of a tunnel, flipped 360 degrees and then came to a stop.
The driver, 44, survived the crash and suffered only minor injuries, local police said in a Facebook post.
The car crashed ahead of the Borik tunnel in northeast Slovakia early morning on Thursday. The driver, who was alone in the car at the time of the accident, cleared the alcohol and sobriety tests and appeared to have fallen asleep, Slovak police in the post featuring the video clip.
No other vehicle was hit in the accident and a car trailing behind the BMW slowed down and turned on its hazard lights.
