The Connecticut police posted the video on Facebook. In the video, Hofler was driving on the highway and swerving in and out of traffic while speeding. At a time, he pointed the camera at his car's speedometer which showed him driving at over 100 mph.

When the car left the highway, it began to spin and the tyres were heard screeching on the road which happened to be the moment he lost control of the vehicle. The car then rolled over as it crashed.
