Man Tapes Himself Car Crash

Andrew MacDonald said he was driving home at 5.30am after a night out in Victoria on 11 January last month when he fell asleep and crashed his car.

He was travelling at a speed of 50-60km/h.

But with a smile on his face and wedged against one side of the car, Andrew filmed himself as a fire crew used the Jaws of Life to get him free.

Describing his injuries, Andrew said he: “Suffered a broken right arm. Broken left Femur. Broke both knee caps. And both ankles. Went for major surgery in Victoria which took total 14 hours over a couple days… Metal plates and screws in everything I broke.”

He said he spent a month in hospital with a “hot nurse” and is recovering quickly.

He says he was “not drinking, or under the influence of any drugs.”
