RENVILLE COUNTY, Minn. — A teenage driver in Renville County, Minnesota is lucky to be alive after he crashed into a crevasse made by heavy rains.

On Tuesday the Renville County Sheriff’s Office posted a video to Facebook showing the car nose down inside the crevasse, made after rain washed away a culvert beneath the road.

The sheriff’s office said the 16-year-old driver was unharmed thanks to airbags and his seatbelt, according to WTMJ.

They reminded drivers to always buckle up.
