Florida man gets himself in heap of trouble jumping Nissan over canal

A man in Lehigh Acres, Florida, broke his back after attempting to jump his vehicle across a canal, Dukes of Hazzard-
style.
According to NBC
, 35-year-old Robert Foley mistook his Nissan Versa
for an orange 1969 Dodge Charger and tried to jump over a 20-foot-wide canal.
One witness, known to NBC only as Gerald, saw the whole thing happen.
'He was driving full speed, came across the canal, he landed right here on the bank as you can see,' he told the news outlet.
'He hit this, hit the truck right here, he got out and started running. I went inside, I was scared.'
A short clip of the aftermath from NBC shows the destroyed vehicle sitting on the other side of the canal. The bank is still damaged where Foley smashed into it.
You have to hand it to the guy, though, he did make it across to the other side, and he ran away despite having a broken back. Needless to say, don't try this at home.
Foley has had his licence revoked since 2017, and now faces a hit and run charge as well as two DUI charges.
