Interstate accidents during the winter are more commonplace than dust bunnies, but the drivers aren’t usually ejected Top Gun-style during collisions.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol released this clip of a January crash this week, and it’s all we can do to avoid covering our eyes as it plays out.

 Astoundingly, the driver survived. He told Fox 8 Cleveland that he doesn’t recall the accident or being ejected from his SUV—just sliding and waking up on the highway.

Sgt. Adam Doles called it “miraculous.”
