SRT Accident... SRT4 hanging over a freeway ledge.

SRT Accident... SRT4 hanging over a freeway ledge. On the other side of the ledge was about a 30-40 foot drop off to another freeway and the only thing that stopped him from going over was his rear tire.

The guy is on SRTforums.com and made it out alive, video is INSANE. He wasn't racing or speeding. Something happened to the front end suspension and caused him to loose control. After looking under the car he realize one of the control arms snapped and broke.

Cops didnt give him any tickets either... lucky to be alive if anything.

Why did the control arm break in the first place? I bet Dodge has recieved a nasty call about this

He finds out today if its considered totalled due to the frame being bent or if it can be repaired.
