A BMW veers off the road before being rammed into the side barriers and mounting a ramp on the shoulder and then propelling so high into the air it hits the tunnel roof before then flipping upside down and smashing onto the road. This is not an action sequence from any Hollywood flick, but for real! The incident took place in the Borik tunnel, near Poprad, northeast Slovakia on December 20. Miraculously, the 44-year-old driver survived the crash, with only minor bruises.
The video of the incident, that was shared by the Slovak Republic Police, has been watched 2.1 million times on its official Facebook account since it was posted online on December 20.
Watch the video:
“Shortly before 5 am on Thursday a BMW passenger was involved in a car accident in front of the Börik tunnel in east Slovakia. The 44-year old driver, who comes from the Bardejov city, did not suffer any injuries, maybe only bruises, but not even breaks,” News.com.au quoted police spokesman David Puchovsky as saying.
The police added that an alcohol test was conducted and it had a negative result. It seems he suffered a microsleep.
