    I was about 200 ft behind this car and witnessed the accident. After going thru the guard rail the car was airborn for just a second, this allowed the engine to rev up and when it hit the groung the car took off like a jet and everything else stated was true. I guess this older gentleman had a stroke, heart attack or fell asleep
