Singing Driver Hydroplanes and Flips Car
This video makes a good PSA for several reasons. One, always wear your seat belt. Two, the speed limit only applies when condition allow it. Three, you have hundreds of loose items in your car.
This guy was driving from Indiana to Wisconsin in the rain, to pass the time he was singing to himself. Of course, going 70 mph in heavy rain isn't always going to end well and he hydroplaned, flipping his car.
I was traveling from Indianapolis to Whitewater, WI for a practice weekend with Machine Ultimate. I was going 70mph (speed limit) on I65 north. I travel the 3-4 hours by myself every time and use singing as a way to pass time, and critique it later. At this point I was practicing a nasal type voice on a Casting Crowns song when the crash happened.
I was watching the road and saw nothing that caused me to worry. Simply hydroplaned in a heavy rain. My car slid sideways, and then was completely backwards by the time I slid off the road and went down a small hill. I hit a mile marker sign (230) on my way off the road.
Here are two of the most amazing parts: I sustained NO injuries. Not even a scratch. And my car took NO mechanical damage and is completely driveable. Only body damage.
