Re: Big Falcon accident

Sorry to hear of the accident.

Re: Big Falcon accident

HOLY ****!!! that is seriously ****ed up. ive seen a few cars like that at the wreckers with blood still in them and it still makes me cringe at thought that this could happen to anyone at any time for whatever reason. looks like ALOT of speed involved there.
such a waste of life (even though stupidity always prevails) and such a waste of a car.

Re: Big Falcon accident

Whilst car accidents are ALWAYS a cause for regret - just looking at that picture has raised a couple of interesting points. 1st of all look at the amount of brake dust on the front rims(compared to the rear) Also the condition of the tyre on the front right seems to be somewhat substandard(may be as a result of the picture quality) As the picture leaves little doubt to the fact that a certain excess of speed being involved.(who knows may well have been in a 100 kph zone.
Hopefully people may learn from his misfortune & ensure that they keep a well maintained & roadworthy vehicle (I have NO IDEA whatsoever if his vehicle was in servicable condition or not - only what I have noted from the picture)
