Holy Shiot! :scared That thing is wrapped around a tree literally! Man, by the looks on those people faces and the car, it doesn't look like the driver made it. :(

Yeah, I thought the Forrestry Department already put out the message that axes and chainsaws are more effective at taking down trees than cars are?

Good GAWD. It appears that the engine block is missing, probably kept going. I would guess that this car HAD to be doing a buck thirty, minimum. It's almost as though someone took some car parts and bent them around a tree as a gag...

It looks like a Ford Escort and the front end is missing.

Was it the result of a real accident or a staged demo - I can't see any skid marks etc etc.

The Police have started doing this stuff - shock tactics and all that:bs

That is pretty sick, it reminds me of the pics you see around here every so often where theres a tree with a shit load of miscellaneous bike parts like fairings and tails and stuff tied to it because its a bad turn that a lot of people go down on or something, pretty wicked though, dont think its a bimmer though, in the 1st pic the driver door has crank windows unless they make em like that over there, who knows

Looks real to me. I figure he probably plowed thru the hedge in the background and got a bit airborne before slamming into the tree. You can see some visable damage to the tree. The front of the car was clearly ripped off.

That my friends, was one of those MADD demonstrations. Take a close look. A lot of the car is missing, and the kids are all HS age. The crash may have happened at some point in the past, but not there. They took the car, and wrapped it around that tree on purpose. The blue rope holding it on is proof of that. And if that wasn't enough, how about the fact that there are no scuff marks around the tree? Or skid marks leading to it? They do this at my old HS too.

You might be right, Kelial. They didn't do that stuff when I was in school. But why would they go to so much trouble as to actually wrap the car around a tree. Wouldn't it be just as effective (and cheaper) to let the kids see the car displayed in the middle of an impound yard, for instance?
