New developments on the story behind Brennan Eden who crashed his car off the I-675 on Monday, August. 23, Dayton Daily News:

BEAVERCREEK — Beavercreek police released 19-year-old Brennan Eden of Mason from custody roughly 20 minutes before he sped down Interstate 675 on Monday morning, hit a culvert, and launched his Pontiac Firebird into the Wagner Road overpass.

The force of the crash broke the car apart and ejected Eden onto the highway during the morning rush hour. He remains at Miami Valley Hospital after suffering serious injuries. The crash closed the southbound lanes of I-675 for five hours on Monday, Aug. 23.

A police cruiser camera caught the crash, and the video has been played on newscasts and websites around the country.

Crash investigators with the Xenia Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol have not determined the specific cause of the accident or if alcohol or drugs played a role.

Beavercreek police said Tuesday that they had arrested Eden at 6:13 a.m. Monday on charges including possession of alcohol, drug paraphernalia and drug abuse after he was found with a 15-year-old Beavercreek girl in the parking lot near the corner of Beaver Vu Drive and North Fairfield Road.

The officer approached the vehicle because it was in the parking lot of a closed business at such an early hour. The officer found an unopened can of alcohol, a trace of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the car.

The girl was released to her father.

Eden was cited, given a court summons and released.

    Well, I'm willing to go out on a limb and say that he probably wasn't in a hurry to get to Bible study.

  2. I hope he will be okay I could care less what he was on if anything, I believe that is the worst wreck I have ever seen. I hope he gets a good wake up call if he was on anything at all
