An image from a cellphone video shows an SUV being launched into the air on a buckled section of Wisconsin highway this week.

EAU CLAIRE, Wisc. -- A section of a rural Wisconsin highway buckled under the heat of this week's record temperatures, leading to an SUV being launched into the air.

A person taking video of the buckled section of pavement from a nearby overpass caught video of the SUV, apparently traveling at full highway speed, launched from the bump in the road, before coming down and veering off of the roadway.

The condition of the occupants of the SUV are not presently known, but according to Eau Claire NBC station WEAU, the roadway has since been repaired.
