The SUV he was trying to pull over before the crash didn't make it very far either. That driver also lost control of his vehicle and it flew off the road, according to police. His vehicle landed in a parking lot below.

HPD told us when they arrived the driver was not with the SUV, however, they found him nearby. Police are investigating the accident, and questioning the driver.

No one was injured in either accident.
