Bad accident in South Africa (**Content Warning**)

Hi Guys,

I love these forums, first time posting though. Just thought I would share with you guys that no car is safe at high speeds. I have excluded any extremly violent pictures.

Not sure if this is the right place to be posting these, sorry if it is not.

If you look at the last two pictures, it looks like he hit the tree at quite some speed.

+1

This is what happens when you start driving like a friggin' moron, going high double-digit to triple-digit speeds on a narrow, barely two-lane road, and hitting a very, very small divot in the road. Looks like car was traveling very fast, hit a dip, went airborn and rotated clockwise, and hit the tree sideways with the passenger (left) side, shredding the car in half. (My theory.) Keep in mind, this is the SEDAN that got ripped to shreds. Imagine what would happen to a convertible....

If you look at the first picture, it looks like dried blood on the front end of the side-curtain airbag. Without a doubt, the driver was probably thrown from the car, or possibly decapitated.


Remember to drive safely out there, everyone, and save the speed and stunts for the tracks. We don't need anymore statistics.

official story: a top speed run was conducted on a sparsely populated 2 mile stretch of road. plain and simple: the car ran out of road, the driver made a panic maneuver and hit a tree.

Results:
driver had only a broken nose, but the two other occupants "exploded" on impact... no "sizable" remains were found of the passengers

driver was a jackass and his friends paid the price... sad stuff

Well from the pictures that I have not posted (extremely graphic) there was only the driver. He was actually cut in half by the seatbelt on impact. I don't know if it is the right place to post such pictures. I think the above posted pictures paint the picture well enough.

I think you should post them as a reminder of what fast driving can do to you..
