A man driving down Highway 99 in California last Wednesday had to make an abrupt stop when a smoking car came flying off an overpass and tumbled on the road, landing just feet in front of him.
Dashcam footage from the scene in Yuba City last week shows the man's truck driving down the winding country road, as a white car could be seen flying through the air on the left, leaving behind a plume of smoke.
A girl in the truck then starts screaming, at which point the driver seems to notice the scene unraveling before him and stops, before the car makes a nosedive onto the street before him, flips over several times and lands upside down in front of the truck.
Metal pieces could be seen flying off the car, which had just narrowly passed through the power lines, with one piece flying at the truck and the battery landing about 60 feet in front of the truck.
