Green-haired eyewitness becomes viral news star

When a police car crashed while in pursuit of a van in Mississippi, a couple of local television reporters were on the hunt for someone who had seen the accident.
Little did they know they were about to break the internet after turning their cameras to Ruby Evans aka Courtney Barnes - a former contestant on popular US TV show So You Think You Can Dance.

Hair and eyebrows threatening to escape from under his baseball cap, Barnes gave an enthusiastic and slightly melodramatic description of the chain of events, recounting the moment the patrol car was flung into a pole:
"It was a full twist about and the police car just twist around like a tornado, girl and the Lord just shook it up and the man just got injured.
"This police officer don't know if he's going to make it or if he's going to tap out."

After the interview, WLBT 3 uploaded the video to their Facebook page, and it has now had over six million views.
