Car crashes into wall along I-10 overpass

A driver has been hospitalized after a vehicle slammed into the wall along the 79th Avenue overpass on Interstate 10 in west Phoenix.

According to DPS officials, the driver was speeding as heading up the 79th Avenue HOV exit ramp. At the top of the ramp, drivers have to make a sharp right turn to go over the freeway, but since the driver was going to face, he couldn't negotiate the turn, and the car skidded and went straight, crashing into the concrete barrier. The car did not go over the overpass.

Phoenix firefighters reportedly had to use the "Jaws of Life" to get the driver out, who was then taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The front end of the car reportedly wedged itself on top of the concrete barrier, and the car came to rest at a 45-degree angle, with the front wheels and engine dangling over the edge of the barrier.
