The car was driving northbound when it reportedly crashed around 8:40 p.m. Scott Brezenski and Myles Anderton, two missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said that the driver crashed while he raised his middle finger towards them while they walked past.
The right side of the car hit the curb then ramped up the support of a telephone pole in front of the Studebaker Memorial Administration Building, launching the car into the air, they said.
The car spun and landed on its top about 20 feet away from the pole in front of Sigma Chi, Brezenski and Anderton said.
“We were just walking, and he looked back and flipped us off,” Brezenski said, adding the driver was carrying a cigarette in the hand he used to make the gesture. “Then the car flipped 10 to 12 feet in the air.”
