Is that blood on the dash, passenger side? Was the vehicle trailer involved?

Yeah it definitely does look like blood on the dash. I guess our airbags don't deploy in rollovers?

That is what the ground is for. :biggrin:

Front airbags would typically do little or even do damage in a rollover. Since they chopped the roof off no saying whether that one had side curtain or not.

Thats a 02-05, so no side curtain airbags. And no way of telling if it was ordered with the seat mounted side impact bags.

The Semi was definetly involved, as you can tell by the front drivers side damage of the TB. Semi was probably turning into the Ford dealer to drop off his load. Trailblazer driver more than likely got inpatient wondering why the Semi was slowing down in the left lane, with his right turn signal on, and went to zip around him just as the semi started turning. Pretty common occurance in my proffesion. The TB was lucky it was a car hauler. If it had been a normal 53" van trailer. We could be looking at a pic of a TB topped by running under the trailer, and I hope I dont have to explain what woulda happened to the driver and passenger in that situation.

That Car Hauler driver probably just lost his job.. such a shame.
