In the aftermath of the crash, Sao said he thought he merely hit a snowbank and rolled over.
“When I woke up in the hospital, they told me I dropped like 50, 60 feet,” he said. “I watched the video like a couple of times.”
He called the incident “irresponsible.”
“I have to accept the consequences of my actions,” he said.
