I'm not sure who's accident this was, but it's some great shots. The Kia looks to have taken quite a beating.<p><A HREF="http://www.pbase.com/tlstew/accident" TARGET="_blank">http://www.pbase.com/tlstew/accident</a><BR><BR>

Re: Accident found (asian01)

And now for a stupid question. I understand how the WHIPS works but what happens to the person sitting behind you in the backseat?

Re: Accident found (RedS40ASR)

geez.... hope everyone walked out of it ok. Is it me or does anyone find it remotely strange that the KIA suffered so much damage while the Volvo damage does not seem as apparent? I guess what I'm trying to say is it b'c the Volvo rear structure strong or is it b'c the Kia's structure is weak? <p>

Do not believe the overdramatization of the WHIPS system where they show the seat getting unhinged and going backwards. The detachment and backward movement are minimal but enough to change the way the forces spread around.<p>Yannis
