Car Accident

There was a link to a video of a suv traveling on a highway with ice slush on either side of the suv. The suv moved over into the slush and the driver lost control and side swiped a box truck and swerved across the median and a 18 wheeler broad sided the suv. A terrible accident.

I believe the link was on this forum. I want my son to see it but now I can't find it. Does anyone remember where it was?

I appreciate the help.

I'll probably get a pretty good argument going here, but I don't think it is real. I've seen vehicles that were hit by a much larger vehicle, and they don't shatter like that, they collapse, some stuff comes off, but not that much of the vehicle comes loose.

This is NOT true of RVs, which do tend to explode into a large number of parts, but that is because cars are welded into one structure, but RVs are often stick boxes on frames.

The video itself seems a bit strange, I don't have access to a good version of it, but at the point of impact it seems enhanced.

It is real. Check Snopes. It happened in Russia, and the SUV driver was killed.
