Police dashcam shows car fly through the air and hit highway overpass.

A 19-year-old Ohio driver is recovering after a horrifying high-speed crash.

Witnesses said Brennan S. Eden was passing other drivers on Interstate 675 at speeds of at least 100 miles per hour just before he lost control of his car.

He crashed when he drove off the left side of the roadway while passing a Sugarcreek Township police car.

The crash was caught on that officer's cruiser camera.

The force of the crash broke the car into three pieces and Brennan was ejected.

"He went down into the median, into the grass, hit the guardrail, went airborne and the car hit the center post of the bridge and literally exploded into three main pieces," said witness Mike Riley.

Police said Brennan was alert and conscious after the crash and was flown to Miami Valley Hospital, where he was last listed in critical condition.

"He is very lucky to still be alive at this point," said Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Marty Fellure. "You can see behind me the impact he took and where he got ejected and landed, he's a very fortunate man right now."

Fellure said they are still investigating the crash trying to determine the driver's speed and why he was passing cars on the berm.
