Re: It'l buff out (R_Rated)

Don't forget to get a 4 wheel alignment...that front passenger wheel looks a little out of whack.<p>I hope whoever was in that car made it, though if there was a passenger he/she might be banged up pretty bad, or worse. Hope not.<p>Any idea what caused the accident from looking at the pics? It looks like a rear and right side impact from two different sources.

my guess...<p>someone rear ended this guy pushing him onto train tracks, only to get hit by a train (not <i>too</i> fast)

Re: (phuz)

I'm not surprised stuff is gone. I think that someone posted this about 4 months ago. I'm surprised any of it is still there!

Interesting. Obviously a crushing side impact like a tree or pole but there's also a significant but less severe pole type impact in the rear (too small / acute to be a tree.) Whatever it was I can't see the rear impact happening after the side unless something hit the car after the side impact.<p>You can definitely see that the spare tire is indeed part of the safety system for rear impacts here.<p>No way to tell so my SWAG is the driver lost traction on a curve, went sideways into oncoming traffic where the car was t-boned and it came to rest with the rear end hitting a pole? Who knows.
