FL drivers falls 100 feet to his death

Authorities have not released the name of the driver whose car fell almost 100 feet off an Orlando roadway, killing the driver.

Police say the driver of the Mini Cooper was speeding when he hit a median on Interstate 4. The car then went airborne, going over the railing and plunging into a retention pond below.

It took rescue crews some time to find the victim in the water. Two witnesses called police.
