XR8 torn in half.

Saw this in the Northern Star News on Sunday morning...What a waste!(The LIFE, I mean!)
Would this be the worst BA wreck ever?

What a shocker!

unfortunally people don't realise how weak cars are to side impacts. No crumple zone.

Airbags not much good to you in this eventuality. Mmmmm...... these bloody high powered cars!!! Trees and power poles should be retro-fitted with air bags I think.
