NBC NATIONAL NEWS — New Jersey traffic officials have released incredible video of a drunk driver's crash.
Cameras at the intersection of Locust Street and Westfield Avenue in Roselle Park were rolling June 29 when the intoxicated driver plowed into oncoming traffic.
An oncoming car entering the intersection clipped drunk driver's rear, sending him sideways.
The vehicle then slid sideways into a traffic barrier that sent it airborne into a light pole.
The car ended up skidding across two more lanes, ending up on its side.
Miraculously, the driver only suffered minor injuries.
No one else was hurt in the crash.
Officials released the video with the hope that it will discourage drunk and reckless driving.
