A 25 year-old man was found a live in his car nearly two days after his car ran off the road and into a creek. The accident killed his wife and the man is currently in Nashville’s Vanderbilt Hospital with life threatening injuries. A passerby found a cellphone on the road and then noticed the overturned car down by the creek.
Law enforcement had to use the Jaws of Life to get the man out of the vehicle. Officers on the scene didn’t know he was alive until they saw his foot move and heard the man begging for water. Police believe the accident occurred when the car hit a guard rail, causing the car to become airborne and land on its roof. The man was trapped in the car for at least 48 to 50 hours.
