Saw the thread/pics last night - this is a BIG frontal impact and it is amazing how the passenger compartment was seemingly unaffected :o

That was impressive!

With the front smashed up like that, and still both front doors could be opened, front window still in one piece and the driver walked away without any injuries.... :bow:

Always better when someone else does it though :blink:

A least no one was hurt - must have been some impact to do that amount of damage - wonder it it rear ended a truck ;)

It's very reassuring to see the pictures and a good example of why a head on is a lot better for your survivability than a quarter to quarter impact.

The guy's missus rear ended a Dodge Ram at 75mph.
Perhaps she thought it was some kind of game, Dodge or Ram and took the latter option :)

Belter! :lol:

I see that no one has asked the most obvious question - "Did she not see the huge white lump that had so obviously" [given the resulting damage]"stopped right in front of her and why was she still doing 75 mph when she hit it?"

It's absolutely amazing that the whole front end is gone but the door looks untouched and even the windscreen appears unbroken.
That's very impressive. The lady's husband said the interior is absolutely fine too.

I was looking at the second picture which doesn't show any cracks but you're right, the windscren is cracked in the first picture. Wouldn't have said it was badly cracked though considering the front end damage.
