(RNN) – A woman using her cell phone caught the moment a driver launched his truck off an interstate.

Alex Stack recorded a man driving on Interstate 96 near Kentwood, MI, when he crossed a median, and launched his pickup truck with an attached trailer over the guardrail. The truck landed into nearby Sycamore Creek, 10 feet below the roadway, according to the Lansing (MI) State Journal.

The driver, 58-year-old Mark Moerland, suffered a concussion, a fractured leg and dislocated ankle in the accident, but is expected to make a full recovery.

Doctors said Moerland suffered an "unspecified medical condition" before he crashed, according to the Lansing State Journal.

Stack, using the social media app Vine on her smart phone, caught the moment in real time, expressing her shock with some expletives.
