Drunk Driver Launches Her Car Over Toll Booth - Caught on Video


Yasmine Villasana, an allegedly drunk driver at the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, airport, drove her car so fast toward a toll booth that she launched her vehicle over the toll booth when she accidentally hit a ramp in front of the booth. Her 2006 Chev Impala is highlighted in yellow in the above photo.

The accident, which was caught on video, caused her car to fly over another vehicle and burst into flames upon landing. The police report states that, amazingly enough, Yasmine only had a broken wrist, and no one else was injured.

Yasmine's Chev Impala suffered a fatal blow and had to be retired to an auto graveyard. Yasmine's mug shot is to the right.

It is said that the driver was slightly ticked off when the control tower refused to clear her for take off, so she decided to take matters into her own hands. Of course, that is only speculation, but airport authorities did confirm that Yasmine had filed no flight plan.

Any seasoned pilot will tell you that you will never be cleared for take off until you file a flight plan.

Ms. Villasana told police that her vehicle had been rear ended by another vehicle "which caused her vehicle to strike the Toll Booth Protector Barricade, launch into the air, land on the roadway and catch on fire." Ms. Villasana also tried to re-enter her vehicle even though it was still on fire.



For whatever reason the police doubted her story, administered a breathalyzer test and subsequently arrested Ms. Villasana for driving while intoxicated.

Did she get her plane?????

Wow, she just came speeding in there from out of nowhere! I think I want to stay out of her way when she's behind the wheel.

Dr B:

No! She missed her flight cuz the cop would not let her get back into her burning car. Some policemen are so unreasonable. Lord knows when she will fly again.

Daisy,

Did you notice her explanation to the cop? She said someone hit her from behind and made her fly through the air. A person would have to be hit awfully hard to get that much clearance off the ground. She does have a creative streak in her though, coming up with that explanation right there on the spot.

Did she make a flight plan for her car?

McCafferty Himself said...

blissoblvious,

No she failed to file a flight plan, so even if she were not arrested for DUI, she would have been in trouble for no flight plan. But this is one pilot that definitely needs to buy flight insurance.

that is so funny, i hope it hurt. it was like watching die hard!! she had to make contact with air traffic control before landing?

This is the effect of too much playing of racing games.

This is one of the reasons why we should avoid playing too much video games.

Dear God what on earth had she been drinking??? She certainly can't blame being rear ended for that- how hard would she have had to have been hit?
