A car almost flew across a Polish village after its driver hit a roundabout at nearly light speed. Traffic cam footage shows the car hitting the roundabout and soaring — until it crashed into a local church graveyard in the village of Rabien, approximately 84 miles west of Poland’s capital of Warsaw.

Firefighters had to cut through the Suzuki Swift’s wreckage to free the 41-year-old injured driver. A Zgierz police spokeswoman said the man was conscious and his life was not in danger and was taken to a hospital in the city of Lodz.
