PALM BAY, FL (WKMG) – A car jumping stunt in Florida went horribly wrong earlier this week in Florida, leaving the victim injured and the driver facing charges.

WARNING: The below video is graphic.

Police said Bladimir Barreto was trying to jump over a moving car Wednesday and that brother Jerome was behind the wheel. Another brother caught it all on video.

As the car approaches, Bladimir can be seen running down the road toward the car. When he tries to to run up and jump over the car, he is struck. The force of the impact sends him flying over the car before landing hard on the ground. 

When the brother filming realizes the stunt has gone terribly wrong, he loses the shot and begins running toward his brother. 

Officials said that Bladimir was flown to the hospital with broken bones and head injuries. He he has not woken up since the crash.

Police said charges are pending against Jerome Barreto for driving without a license and possibly reckless driving.
