Check out this video of a driver who crashes his car in Florida.

The driver admitted to police that he was texting just moments before he crashed into a tree and his car flipped over.

Amazingly, the 23-year-old man climbed out of the car and was not injured.

The video was caught by a police dashboard camera in Fort Meyers, Fla.

One police officer said that he was surprised to hear texting caused the crash. The police officer thought the driver was having a medical episode.

The incident happened Jan. 4. The driver was cited for careless driving and texting.
