Car Crash!

Well, seen another accident, this time on plenty road, bundoora. Heard that driver was going 200KM/h, before he hit a pole, which split the car in half and killed him! Car was a white Honda Integra, about a 90 model. Driver was on the ground, with blanket over him. It was a really hard impact, the actual concrete power pole, was leaning over, so you can just picture the force of the accident. Both pieces of the car were about 20 metres apart. Each accident teaches ya how dangerous hooning around can be!

dont wanna see anymore, seeya guys.

Sorry you had to witness that snavy. Are you alright?

For the rest of us, let us take this as a warning that that bit of fun on the road often has dire consequences and the impact on loved ones and others can be enormous.

Yes, of course. That's the way cops report the speed (not based on physics, rather based on guesstimates). It must have been down a steep hill......

that was my thought as well, i told everyone, no way 200 it would of been somewhere around 160-170. But it was a hard impact, car in two pieces, power pole was bent.

You guys would have heard about this most likely. 3 guys from my old skool (1st year uni this year) were driving a white excel and were doin in xcess of 180km going down a hill along Mont Albert Rd they hit a roundabout at that speed. Driver and passanger died and the backseat occupant survivd

If you want to be a hoon, make sure you do it on gran turismo 3
Nobody gets hurt then
Somebody many years ago drove down the wrong side of the road and forced my father to drive into and flatten a no standing sign about 7 ft tall.
The 260zx was a nice mess
