Car Flies 20 Feet In Air, Lands In Trees

A car fleeing a traffic stop in Central Florida went airborne for 150 feet and landed in some trees after striking a culvert, deputies said. Marion County deputies said Christopher Watson was speeding in his 1995 Ford Taurus on Highway 484 Monday evening when he caught a deputy's attention.
Watson, who was driving on a suspended license, refused a deputy's attempt to pull him over and swerved onto the shoulder of the road and struck a culvert, deputies said.
Upon impact, the Taurus went 15 to 20 feet into the air for about 150 feet before landing on its roof in a cluster of trees, deputies said. The sheriff's office said Watson was treated at an Orlando hospital and will be charged with fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer and driving with a suspended license.
