Car Comes Flying From Nearby Overpass

Occurred on July 14, 2021 / Yuba City, California, USA

Info from Licensor: "While on an early morning drive coming from our daughter's house, my wife and I couldn't decide to go get breakfast or take the trailer I was pulling back to our house. We debated for about a minute and decided to go back to the house, I was just mentioning I need to wash my truck and I was looking at my wife who's face went total Scary Movie screaming I looked to my left and slammed on the brakes as it looked like we were about to have a collision with a car literally flying through the air with what looked like a meteor plume behind it. I didn't realize what it really was until it slid to a stop on its roof just 26 feet in front of me and my family in the truck. The second scream was our 11-year-old's. For two or three days she was worried another car would fly again. I told my wife to dial 911 and I saw the engine on fire, I ran to the driver's side of the car and tried to open the doors. I then went back to my truck to get a large bottle of water and quickly extinguished the fire that was getting bigger. Then I went to the passenger side and tried the doors and that's when I heard a groan from inside the car. It was hard to see in there as the roof was on top of the seatbacks. I asked the person how many are in there with you and she said, 'One, just one.' I was astonished, then I asked if they could move their legs and I saw she was trying to squirm out from where they were I said 'stop! don't move. Help is on the way.' and to 'relax and be still.' At that moment I said a prayer for her. The first responders showed up quickly and I gave the officer on the scene my testimony."
