PHOENIX - The driver of a BMW apparently recorded his own crash on a road leading up South Mountain, and the video has gone viral.
Posted on YouTube, the driver can be seen moving at a high rate of speed on the two-lane road, at times crossing the double yellow line, gripping the steering wheel trying to negotiate the curves.
About 30 seconds into the clip, posted by Mischief.TV, the young driver fails to keep the BMW M3 on the road and crashes into rocks sending the car into the air while the air bags deploy.
The driver can be heard yelling while opening the door.
According to a Mischief.TV representative, the driver was 19 years old and was not injured. The Mischief.TV spokesperson told ABC15 they hope people will see the video and learn from it.
ABC15 spoke with a Phoenix Police Department spokesperson who said the department was aware of the video, but there was no police report involving the crash, therefore, there is no investigation.
