    There have been people who have survived exploding collisions after colliding with semis.(though this one was from behind).

    Although this is a very old clip,to this day I dont understand how lucky you have to be to skid into the back of a semi at 165 mph on the driver side of a 2 door sports car that gets ripped apart and live.

    Thanks for the info about it being Russian. I found this.. http://www.vladimir.kp.ru/daily/25841.5/2813489/

    Visitors to the Internet in full to discuss an accident that occurred Feb. 24 at the village Omutischi Petushki area. Off-road "Nissan" wagon collided with a counter: pickup shattered into small pieces, the driver was killed instantly. Video of the accident, written subsequent to the DVR, "Nissan" car traveled around almost all the online forums. "Tin" - so dubbed some of its users. Official sources of information, in particular, the Office of Traffic Police of the Vladimir region expressed not so emotional.

    - February 24, about 18 hours and 20 minutes on the 109-kilometer highway M-7 Volga car driver «Nissan Navara» - Moscow resident born in 1980 lost control and performed on a collision with a motor vehicle "GAZ", - said Mikhail Maslov, an inspector Traffic Police Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia Vladimir region. - As a result, «Nissan Navara» drove into oncoming traffic and collided with a Freightliner truck and a car "VAZ 21723". From his injuries SUV driver died at the scene. In addition, the driver suffered "Lada." With numerous cut wounds a person was hospitalized. Now the traffic police department investigation Petushki district conducted investigation verification.

    - Driver "Nissan" was named Alexander. He was a good guy, an experienced driver. I was driving home to his wife and children - he has two of them ... - A message on one of the sites put a familiar victim. - The funeral will be held February 28 in Balashikha ... For us it is a tragedy ... It's such grief. No one understands how it all could happen. "
    Пикап разлетелся на мелкие куски, водитель погиб мгновенно
    Pickup shattered into small pieces, the driver was killed instantly

    People just superstitious the idea that the driver of "Nissan" has become another victim of an enchanted road, any way is considered part of the road near the village of Omutischi. November 3, 2007 around 11:00 pm it was on the 109th kilometer of the route Moscow - Ufa crashed theater and film actor Aleksandr Dedjushko. In the car, "Toyota Picnic" also had a wife a son eight years. On that tragic day were terrible weather conditions, it was snowing. The actor lost control, drove into the oncoming lane and collided with a truck "for sale". All three died on the spot. And in March 2009 about this same passenger bus collided with a truck "KamAZ". As a result, both vehicles caught fire. Killed 12 bus passengers - businessmen from Ulyanovsk, and both drivers.

    If you do not take into account the mystical version, February 23 it was snowing. The video of the tragedy shows that the "Nissan" touched the wheel "furrow" of wet snow and then threw the first car to the right by a passing "Gazelle" and then tossed into the oncoming lane. Perhaps the accident would not have happened if the road cleaned. And even more so there would be a terrible collision, if it stood on this site "bump" on the need for a long time that experts say. However, to get a comment about the timing of the installation facility, the Office of the highway Moscow - Nizhny Novgorod, the Federal Road Agency, we have not succeeded. Phones just do not respond.
    That's a google translation so I hope it's accurate.

    Yeah, it's accurate, or at least as accurate as Google Translate gets. Google Translate is a lot better than other translators like Babelfish.

    I speak some Russian; but not fluently... I saved the article, so I will attempt to translate this weekend.. However, I have also noted the Google translator works pretty well so I would presume that the translation contained in the thread would be fairly accurate.

    It's ok; Russian to English is as about mistake-free as you're gonna get with an online translator. English to Russian, however, sucks. I don't know why, but it doesn't work so well going the other way.

    As to that SUV, I do hope it was instant for them and relatively painless. I demolished a car when someone hit me head on and it didn't look much like a car anymore, but not even close to that bad. At least the passenger compartment was all in one piece around me, if a bit munched in.

    Quotes are in the wrong order. The cables used to prevent cars & trucks from going across the median are referred to cheese graters by bikers.

    My question was about how a disintegrating car reminded him of the way Indy cars are designed.

    Damn that corvette (photo above) sucked. No corvettes should look like that.

    Didn't mean to ignore you...at one point I would swear I saw your post disappear & thought you had deleted it.

    Indy cars are designed to break apart on impact. This is supposed to absorb some of the energy of hitting something (which I believe is the same principle behind safer barriers).

    The post didn't disappear; either way, don't worry about it.

    Huh. Learned something new today. I didn't know they were designed to disintegrate; it would truly suck to be the driver of one of those things if they crashed.

    If the car disintegrating absorbed a lot of the energy, the driver would probably be relatively OK – if a second (or more) car crashed into him with no more car around him, that would end badly.

    That picture sends chills up my spine. You know the driver's face had a huge grin on it milliseconds before they realized that death was imminent. Keeping it on the track was a hard lesson to learn.

    The same could probably be said for the driver of the car in the last picture. Not the huge grin, maybe, but definitely the "oh ****" moment right before death.

    LOL yeah when I went to intermediate collision investigation school they showed the clip from final destination with the chain reaction TC. The instructor said that would be one of the longest TCs to write. Ever since then I see 3 or 4 car TC as all being easy.

    yes I agree.

    As silly and unrealistic as that entire film series is I think that was perhaps one of the best cinema choreagraghed highway pileups of all time.


    Anyone know who's freeway that this sequence was filmed on?Im guessing either Pennsylvannia or Virginia.Couldnt tell from the side of the state trooper car(for legal purposes they had the state logo removed I think)
