When the phone rings, but it's not God at the other end, well, it means that it's not your time. Ask Brennan Eden. The 19-year-old's 1985 Pontiac Firebird went airborne, smashed into a pillar, and disintegrated early yesterday morning. But he's still around to talk about it, though he remains in critical condition after being ejected onto the highway shoulder. A police cruiser's dashboard camera captured the crash, near Dayton, Ohio, on tape.

WTDN Dayton adds that Eden was reportedly arrested an hour before the crash after police found traces of pot and drug paraphernalia in his car. Watch, or read the full article. (More Brennan Eden stories.)
