A terrible single-car accident in Lafayette was caught on video surveillance.

A car left the roadway at I-49 and Gloria Switch and ended up in a nearby field. Luckily no other car was in this small SUV's path otherwise this could have been A LOT worse.

Police, Fire, and EMS responded to the scene and injuries were reported in this accident. You can see that this vehicle actually went airborne prior to crossing several lanes of the roadway and crossing a ditch.

The video was captured from a car lot near the busy intersection.
