KSHB reports that the incident happened at around 4 p.m. at East Blue Mills Road East in Kansas City. The driver, a 7-year-old boy, became airborne while driving a 2007 Buick LaCrosse. His 6-year-old brother was in the passenger seat as the car hit a guard rail, the ground, and eventually struck a wire, a tree, then flipped over.
