KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Elisha Brown, 18, was simply driving to work, headed south on 71 Highway when he lost control of his car and landed upside down on the other side.
Brown said he must have hit something in the road.
"My tires started swerving," he said.
His car didn't stop at the median between north and southbound 71 highway just east of downtown. Instead, his car went airborne and flipped, sailing right over the hood of an oncoming car.
Brown's car came crashing down on the far side of the median of northbound 71 highway. Brown, who was wearing his seatbelt, was able to crawl out.
A shaken Brown sat on the side of the road, thankful. "It was a once-in-a-lifetime thing and I got through it and I'm alive," he said. "No one else was hurt, I thank God for that."
