Here’s some social media-aided citizen journalism for ya.

A 59-year–old Kentwood, Michigan man has been taken to the hospital with serious injuries after the truck he was driving crossed the median and flew a guardrail on I-96. The truck, which was also towing a riding mower on a trailer, landed in Sycamore Creek, according to the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office.

Spectacularly, Vine user Alex Stack caught the whole thing on the 6-second video app. You can clearly see the truck jump the railing and fall out of sight into the creek below. It’s some crazy stuff.

“Did I just fucking witness this no fucking way,” she said.

…And the aftermath of witnessing something crazy and posting it online:

The man was reportedly talking to police at the scene – which means he was conscious at the scene. That’s almost as incredible as the video, plus the fact that someone happened to catch it on Vine.
