DORR, Mich. — A video circulating social media has captured the moment a vehicle went airborne over a US-131 exit.

The Michigan State Police Southwest Post says a black Chevy Impala was headed southbound on US-131 when the car left the roadway at exit 68 (142nd Avenue).

Authorities said the vehicle landed on its passenger side in the ditch on the south side of 142nd. 

The driver, a 25-year-old man from Kalamazoo, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to an area hospital for treatment and a blood draw. 

Troopers said the man showed multiple signs of intoxication. 

Due to his injuries, the driver wasn't arrested, but he's expected to face various charges. 

A witness said the victim was bloody when he stopped to assist.

"We did see a child’s car seat," said Mike Rodriguez, owner of Detroit Diesel ACM, "The car was on its passenger side, it landed on it’s side. We were thinking we better check, and we saw blood. But come to find out, that’s where the driver crawled out of his car."
