Driver who jumped over tow truck “I thought I was going to die”

The woman, who was videotaped as her car ran into a tow truck, flew into the air, and crashed into a Georgia highway, said she was recovering after a two-week hospitalization and several surgeries.

“I don’t remember much, but I do remember thinking I was going to die,” Tanaisha Breton told WALB-TV in an interview on Tuesday. “It really hurt. I felt everything.”

On May 24, a Lowndes County sheriff’s deputy was responding to an accident when Mr. Breton’s sedan flew into the air after he ran over the ramp of a flatbed tow truck parked in the left lane on the other side of the highway. The jumping out was recorded on the body camera.

Police reports said the car climbed 120 feet (37 meters) before landing upside down. It collided with another vehicle, overturned and stopped.

“That’s pretty much what I dream when I go to bed,” said 21-year-old Bruton. “It just happens over and over.”

Bruton was admitted to a nearby intensive care unit. florida. She said she needed at least four surgeries due to damage to her internal organs, but she is grateful to have survived.

When she finally saw the video footage of the crash, she was stunned.

“The family didn’t want to see the video,” Mr Bruton said. “But of course I’m hardheaded, so I used social media.”
