On May 24, the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office had stopped to help drivers who had gotten into an accident when another one happened right in front of them. A car drove up the ramp of a tow truck and went airborne.

The car flew 120 feet through the air “Dukes of Hazzard”-style, authorities say. Deputies on the scene raced to help the driver who survived the crash.

This serves as a reminder to pay attention while on the road and to move over for emergency vehicles.
