"Two cars were suspended on either side of him, swinging back and forth. The stunt was for Goodwin to free himself from the restraints and then fall on an air mattress, and avoid getting crushed by the cars as they swung in the air.

The source added: “The impact caused the cars to explode, erupting in a gigantic fireball. Goodwin fell to the ground and hit his head."
