@SV: from what I've heard the driver possibly passed out, foot down. Next thing that happened, purportedly, was crashing through a tree at some 6 meters high and landing on top of some building near the road. If that whole thing was truly what ensued, "deliberate" is about as far-fetched as the driver's own survival of such a stunt.
Ok, ok, though I know an actual case of drunk driving where the driver thought he would jump over a parked vehicle. In a car. No springs attached...
Foot down, into the vehicle. Surprisingly, there was no jump.
He lost the license, but the mentality of a drunk person was shown quite clearly. I don't doubt the story you describe is true, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone just wanted to JUMP!
