Caught on Tape: car crashing through mall

Security video from a Florida shopping mall caught a very unusual shopper.

The Altamonte Springs mall was closed on Monday night when a driver crashed through the glass doors.

Security camera video captured a 19-year-old man crashing his car through a mall entrance, down a hallway and into a perfume kiosk. But the driver wasn't done, he then headed toward an escalator.

The car clipped the railing of the escalator then dropped down one level before landing on its side.

The driver was admitted to a hospital for treatment of his injuries and for psychiatric evaluation. He told police responding to the scene that he was trying to commit suicide.

You can see the video alone here.

It's like something out of The Blues Brothers.
