A car was severed in half after a Charlotte driver hit a curb, lost control of his car and plowed into a tree along Rama Road early Thursday morning.

At approximately 2 a.m., authorities received a call about a horrific crash that occurred along the 1200 block of Rama Road, just south of East Independence Boulevard.

According to Police, the car was sliced in two through the middle of the passenger cabin.  It is believed that if anyone else had been riding in the car, they would not have survived.

Medics rushed the critically injured driver to the hospital.  His condition is not known.

Authorities believe the car was headed northbound on Rama Road at dangerous speeds when the driver hit the curb, lost control and crashed into a tree.

The road was shut down while crews worked to investigate and clean up the crash.
