Witness’s dramatic account of police car crash goes viral
Courtney Barnes just raised the bar for all future witnesses.
A Mississippi news station asked Barnes about a car accident he apparently witnessed involving a police officer.
Barnes’ account has become the latest and greatest viral video, surpassing well over one million views in less than five hours on the station’s Facebook page.
The officer was involved in a high speed chase Monday afternoon when his patrol car was forced into a utility pole. He suffered a head injury but is expected to make a full recovery, according to WLBT.
You may recognize Barnes when you watch the video. He is a former contestant on So You Think You Can Dance. He’s also a Philadelphia Eagles fan and has the hat and hair color to prove it.
