Watch: Driver's singing selfie interrupted by scary crash

YouTuber singing while driving involved in crash

YouTube user Travis Carpenter is sharing scary video of his recent crash.

He says he was driving at about 70 mph in heavy rain, and singing, when he hydroplaned and crashed. 

Ironically, the lyrics he sang at the exact moment of the crash were, “And now my life to you I give…”

He was not seriously injured, however.

This is the caption he posted with the video: 

Disclaimer: no injuries occurred. I was traveling from Indianapolis to Whitewater, WI for a practice weekend with Machine Ultimate. I was going 70mph (speed limit) on I65 north. I travel the 3-4 hours by myself every time and use singing as a way to pass time, and critique it later. At this point I was practicing a nasal type voice on a Casting Crowns song when the crash happened. I was watching the road and saw nothing that caused me to worry. Simply hydroplaned in a heavy rain. My car slid sideways, and then was completely backwards by the time I slid off the road and went down a small hill. I hit a mile marker sign (230) on my way off the road. Here are two of the most amazing parts: I sustained NO injuries. Not even a scratch. And my car took NO mechanical damage and is completely driveable. Only body damage.
