A Lowndes County deputy had just arrived on the scene and was approaching one crash on highway 84 in Georgia when his body cam caught the horrifying moments that led up to another one on the opposite side of the highway on May 24.

The deputy was walking toward one crash as a Nissan Altima was speeding toward a flatbed tow truck on the opposite highway, according to Central Oregon Daily News.

Dramatic Crash on Highway 84 in Georgia

The tow truck had its ramp down, and in what looks like a scene from an action adventure movie out of Hollywood, the sedan doesn't appear to even make an effort to slow down, but hit the ramp at full speed.

The sound of crunching metal and breaking glass can be heard. The front bumper got ripped off as the car was catapulted through the air.

The unfortunate bystander in front of the tow truck wearing a reflective jacket can be seen attempting to duck and run to safety at the same time

After clearing the cab of the truck, the car flipped in the air and as it was descending, hit another car that was traveling along the highway.

Once the Altima hit the pavement, it rolled and skidded before stopping.

The deputy can be heard calling in the accident and seen running toward the smoking vehicle before it ever came to a stop.

A police report noted that the vehicle flew 120 feet down the highway, according to Central Oregon Daily News.

Driver and Passenger in Mangled Vehicle

The driver of the car was later identified as a 21-year-old Tallahassee, Florida woman.

She was seriously injured, but managed to survive and was transported to South Georgia Medical center, according to Traverse City Record Eagle.

A passenger in the car, a 30-year-old Hahira, GA man, reportedly had only minor injuries.

There was an empty car seat in the back of the vehicle, and a search of the area was performed to make certain that an infant hadn't been ejected from the vehicle.

Authorities later learned that there wasn't an infant in the car seat at the time of the accident.

There was a Lowndes County deputy who was hit by airborne debris from the accident, and he was transported to a local hospital, according to Fox News.

Authorities Attempted to Learn Cause of Crash

The Sheriff's office has attempted to talk with the woman to try to get a clear understanding of what happened, but her injuries have prevented her from speaking, according to ABC11.

The accident is still under investigation to determine the condition of the driver in the lead-up to the accident, and the cause of the accident.
