Take to the Sky on a Natural High

Unfortunately, she wasn’t prepared to stop at the toll booth.
What happened next was a magical, fiery flight that we can all enjoy via Youtube.
The Impala bursts into flames as it takes flight! Johnny Storm, eat your heart out.
One of the best parts of this story is Villasana’s attempt to explain her way out of the situation…
Here’s a report from The Sun (UK):
This driver chose the wrong way to fly out of an airport when she launched over a toll booth — in her car.
Yasmine Villasana, 22, was arrested for drink-driving after ploughing into a barrier and taking off at Dallas Airport, US, on Tuesday.
Her Chevy Impala launched over the 30ft barrier and landed on the road on the other side before bursting into flames.
Cops said when they arrived on the scene Villasana was trying to get back into her still burning car.
Despite this she insisted she had only had “one vodka and cranberry” the night before the crash.
She said her car had been rear-ended before the smash.
Cops inspected the vehicle but they found no evidence of any collision from the rear.
The scene made for some amazing photos:
DListed called her “A proud graduate of the Duke Brothers school of driving,” and added:
“Surprisingly, Yasmine only broke her wrist during the crash and nobody else was hurt. Yasmine told police she only drank one cranberry and vodka the night before. Yasmine also continued to roll out the hilarious lies when she claimed that someone rear-ended her. I believe her. The spirit of KITT tossed her over that toll.”
Many Youtube commenters thought this story couldn’t be real after viewing the video. It’s legit, skeptics! Here’s the police report!
I personally get the giggles when someone embarrasses themselves in this manner and then turns out to have an accessible Facebook account.
Yasmine Villasana did not disappoint! Her employment is simply perfect.
Here’s Yasmine “ON THE WAY 2 THE RKELLY CONCERT”: note the telltale mole under the right eye…
UPDATE: OK, I take that back. My favorite is this picture discovered by a commenter on Jalopnik:
No doubt you’ve heard the expression, “Why drink and drive when you can smoke and fly?”
Yasmine says eff that noise. Buy her a drank and hitch a ride, and you’ll find yourself airborne soon enough.
