    Police are investigating whether on not speed was a factor in this accident. I say no way!

    Yah! I see that. Not only did he make the grade, he also got the extra marks. I think we have our winner.

    Hey guys,

    He sure did hit that guardrail damn near perfect to launch himself and if you notice he didnt have his brakes mashed when he came up to it and launched off of it until he was in the air. I wonder if it was a suicide attempt? Or am I just stating the obvious here and everyone is like duh ya freaking idiot!

    Sure looks like suicide attempt to me. You are right......no brakes until he left the ground. And he was going 130mph....easily....Only reason he survived at all is the car turned and hit on the Pass side... That is crazy....
