VIDEO: Motorist On Busy Highway Passes Out Behind The Wheel


Watch as this motorist suffers from a medical emergency while driving on a busy highway, sending him crashing off the road through a fence and into a field!

From the video description: “Previously unknown medical condition caused a crash on 4/2/2015. I have never passed out in 26 years, but suddenly passed out. I wasn’t tired, sleepy or anything like that. The last thing i remembered was turning off the cruise control, then I just passed out. I woke up a split-second before hitting that last fencepost, but was so disoriented that I didn’t hit the brakes for another two seconds. When I went into the ditch, apparently my body pitched forward and my foot mashed the gas pedal to the floor. That’s why the tach went to 5K and the car drifted so much. Afterwards, I had severe shock and disorientation. State Farm decline to pay for the car’s repair, as I was a few hours past the deadline for comprehensive coverage. The vehicle was covered by my truck’s policy, as I had not gotten the Mustang’s title paperwork finished and couldn’t insure it until then. State Farm has 14 days of uninsured vehicle coverage offered. They also raised my rates and removed my safe driver discount, even though I have never been in an accident that was my fault in 8 years of driving. So that seems a bit unfair. I just hope that I can pay my medical bills, pay the car off, then fix it/get it fixed. Media inquiries please see break.com, as Defy Media has acquired rights to this video. I didn’t want to sell the rights, but it was the only option. I waited over a month before uploading the video. I also declined interviews, because I want to get over this. I have no wish for fame or fortune. The only reasons I uploaded this was to let my 13 subscribers know why I haven’t uploaded recently and to show that horrible accidents can happen to anyone at any time. People seem hung up on the camera view, but my Duster has had the exact same perspective camera mount since July 2013. This video was not staged, as witness reports and Law Enforcement investigations can attest. The York Sheriff Dept. handled the investigation. After I can get the car repaired and start driving again, you will see more videos from me. I am not giving up! God Bless. And, as an update, my health is quite improved since then. Blood pressure adjusted to healthy levels, and no further symptoms. So, I should be good to drive quite soon (have to wait the mandatory 90 days) and hopefully get my medical bills paid off soon. And like my doctor said, this could happen to anyone at anytime, so think about how you would feel if it happened to you.”
