Modesto Police Department officer Billy Boyle explains how an 18-year-old driver crashed a Ford Mustang, launching it on top of two other vehicles in Modesto, California on June 26, 2019.

An 18-year-old male suffered moderate injuries when he went over an embankment in a 2000 Ford Mustang, crashed into the side of a trailer and came to rest upside down on two vehicles, Modesto police report.

The crash occurred about 12:20 p.m. at West Hatch and Ustick roads, southwest of Modesto.

Police said the cause of the crash remains to be determined, but speed and potentially a mechanical issue appear to be contributing factors.

No one other than the Mustang driver, who was alone in the car, was injured.
