    • I had 13 Hyundais and one I was involved in head on crash. I survived without a scratch. The minivan I hit was thrown over onto its side. I would rather be in no other car than 85 Pony; Even the cop said if I was in a weaker car, I would have been wearing my engine.

      Tiburons are great cars, almost better than Lada 😉

  1. I guess the guy just leaned a bit to the right and evaded the rail easyly that way. Thats what I would do.

  2. Never seen a wreck like this with the guard rail impaleing a car. Please, what kind of car would protect you from a ton of spiked steel, none. This guy had to have lost something.

  3. A few years back, I saw a similar accident in Belarus, but the driver was not so lucky to survive. The railing tore through his leg, and he bled to death before emergency care could get to him. So sad. So sad. How many others killed and maimed before Belarus fixes their dangerous and deadly guard rails?

  4. Ah, Guardrail spearing. That used to be a problem here in the states back in the 60s and 70s, before they changed the way guardrails were anchored and mounted, in particular the ends (so the collapse and crinkle in ways that prevent these kind of accidents).
