PRAIRIEVILLE - Video of a vehicle launching over a railroad track and speeding through an Ascension neighborhood has caught the attention of law enforcement.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office said it's investigating the video, which was filmed on Swamp Road and posted on social media Thursday. In that video, a car is seen zipping over an elevated railroad crossing and briefly going airborne as it flies past a sign warning drivers to "watch for vehicles" coming over the tracks.

Pieces of the car's fender broke off as it violently crashed back onto the roadway and were left behind at the scene. A witness claimed the car also ran another driver off-road when the two vehicles nearly collided head-on. 

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the sheriff's office.
