    TRUCK vs TREE

    i was coming home the other night and stumbled upon this freakish sight…..the road is a very small, twisty with lots of curves….the speed limit is 25 mph and if I wanted to the highest speed I could achieve would be ~70 mph….but somehow this little truck managed to hit a speed of at least 60 mph, loose control and slam backward tailgate first into a tree…..and the small tree kicked his a$$.....if you look at the picture youll see the tree split the bed of the truck all the way up to where the axel stopped it and then somehow the frame of the truck broke in half….all the windows were shattered out and look close at the white powdery stuff all over the floor and door….. I thought it was soo amazing I had to go home and return to the accident with a camera

    I'm pretty sure they were not putting airbags on S-10's when that one was made.

    There's a stain on the lid of the tool box.... maybe that's where his head skipped off it on it's way into the woods?

    Outlook: not good for the driver of truck #2... just look at how the truck hit the tree... the driver couldn't have chosen a worst way to hit it.

    they had to use the jaws of life to get his body outta there
    ...i doubt you could call them the jaws of "life" in that case.
