That's what happens when people in SUV's think their special and drive like idiots regardless of road conditions....oh wait a minute, we are special :biggrin:

But on a serious note, it can happen to anyone whether they are driving to fast and cause the accident or if their being cautious and are just innocently taken out by a careless driver. Either way, I hope everyone can stay safe this winter, I really hate seeing car accidents because a lot of them can be avoided.

here is the latest one ! and the owner survived!View attachment 4059it looks like a saab 97x

Ludovic Masciave, 36, was driving his car through the Arly Gorge in the French Alps when a 20 ton boulder crashed onto the roof of his vehicle. Amazingly, Masciave survived the crash and is recovering in a local hospital, according to Landov.
"I remember the impact of the rock," Masciave told French newspaper Le Parisien. "I'd been driving slowly at between 40 and 50 kilometres [25 to 31 miles] an hour when suddenly there was a terrible shock which brought the vehicle to a sudden halt. I immediately lost consciousness."
Analyzing the photo, it's nearly impossible to imagine how Masciave escaped from the vehicle alive. The entire vehicle appears smashed under the weight of the 20 ton rock. The Daily Mail reports that the vehicle was so damaged that rescue workers couldn't even determine the make and model of Masciave's vehicle. Naturally, they assumed the driver didn't survive. And yet he lived, despite injuries that include flattened lungs and several broken ribs.
Fortunately, Masciave is expected to make a full recovery. He says he plans to sue the local government for not removing the boulder earlier. He was flown to a local hospital in Albertville, France where he is still scheduled to undergo several operations before being released.
"The space was very restricted. It could be measured in centimeters," Masciave told Le Parisien, referring to the inside of the car. "All I was thinking about was stopping the pain. When firefighters were able to open the door I was finally relieved of the huge pressure of the rock." thats why i love my gmt!

Not thankful to be alive, not glad to be making a full recovery, excited to get the opportunity to sue for millions. Nice priorities.

Nothing in that clip tells me he's not thankful for his condition, but you can read into it what you wish. :undecided:

From another report:

"It's a miracle I'm alive. Although I'm not a believer I do think this was a miracle...Now I will see life differently," he told Le Parisien.
