“This vehicle hit an object while traveling North, causing it to become air born, when it landed the operator had no brakes,” fire officials wrote. “The vehicle went across the grassy area, and into the North Bound on ramp, sliding completely under this trailer and just about out the other side.”

The car was then dragged “a good distance” by the truck.
