A 23-year-old man sped down Buffalo, New York’s Walden Avenue at more than 100 miles per hour early Wednesday morning when his car went airborne, spun out of control, and crash-landed into a pole and a fire hydrant before catching fire.

The man survived the accident and is listed in stable condition at The Erie County Medical Center, where he has been communicating with officials.

The man’s car was reportedly strewn in pieces over an entire block.

“That car right there went flying straight airborne,” witness Ed Harden told WIVB. “He hit down, there was a spark. And when he got right there by that church right there, all of a sudden he went into a fishtail.”

Police say that charges may be filed against the driver.

There’s no word yet on whether or not drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
