A Slovakian man is lucky to be alive — let alone unharmed — after his BMW flipped and barrel rolled into a tunnel Thursday.
Slovakian police released dramatic video footage of the incident a day after they say a 44-year-old native of Bardejov may have “suffered a microsleep” behind the wheel.
The driver appeared to launch off a barrier, hit the top of the tunnel which began a barrel roll, and land inside the Borik tunnel on the east side of the country.
David Puchovsky, a spokesperson for the Slovak Police Force, told Global News that the accident occurred early Thursday morning.
The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
