Video of airborne car at Dorr freeway exit goes viral

A video of a car that went airborne Thursday near the Dorr 142nd Avenue exit on U.S.-131 has gone viral on the Internet.

Troopers from the Michigan State Police post in Wayland said the driver of the vehicle, a man in his 20s, has a history of substance abuse and one conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol. His driver’s license was suspended in March 2021. Whether he was under the influence or any substance is being investigated.

The motorist was taken to a nearby hospital with facial injuries, but it was believed he escaped any serious harm.

Mark Huizinga of Huizinga Rebuilding & Truck Parks provided the video taken by a surveillance camera at the business near the ramp at the exit.

The video has been posted on Facebook at the web site of WOOD-TV Channel 8.


  • Just a good ol’ boy,
    Never meaning no harm
    Beats all you never saw,
    Been in trouble with the law
    Since the day they were born
    Straightenin’ the curves,
    Flattenin’ the hills
    Someday the mountain might get ’em
    Bur the law never will

    Thankfully this drunk punk didn’t harm/kill anyone this time. I wonder how many more chances we will give him………
