The driver crawled out on his own, never touched either guard rail, but did get a DUI.

Based on the marks on the other side it looks like he made the transition, a case would be really bad with the barriers.

From the launch video it looks like he was still climbing when he cleared the far side barrier. Must have been a hell of a drop to the landing. He should have tried it slower and stuck the landing ramp instead of overshooting.

A landscape video, shot off a TV in a vertical format, displayed in Facebook in landscape...  nice.

My family farm was in Dorr, I know that one well. 

How to get there from GR.  Drive south until you smell cow E36 M3, turn west, when you get to where the old white barn used to be head south, at the dead end West, second house on the left. 

The entrance ramp northbound can sneak up on you also, may have entered sideways once or twice.

Why was someone recording this at this particular time?  Unless of course they knew it was going to happen...
