    Wow, that full sized SUV took a lot of damage. That other car must be a mini van then, I doubt any car could have done that type of damage without being pretty much smashed to bits.

    Nasty head-on. The driver of the smaller vehicle (with the windshield busted out) likely died from being thrown through that windshield.

    Wow yea that is exactly what it looks like that hole in the windsheild. There was an accident where a tractor trailer crossed the highway barrier a week ago in my dads section of the state (hes a district manager for the DOT) he called me up and said "CJ, I've been working on the state for 23 years and I have never seen anything like this."

    There are some bad accidents some of the kids my age don't realize it they drive around in there little hondas that probably weigh less then my mower without their seatbelts on one day they are going to get hit and learn their lesson.

    I bet they were on the cell phone and not paying attention?

    Dang, you would think that Tahoe would have held up better...The minivan windshield almost looks pulled back, or somone went flying through there becase they were too lazy to buckle up.

    Looks like the Tahoe did what it was supposed to do. The front absorbed nearly all the energy of the impact, while the passenger area looks to be in tact. I bet the driver came away with nothing more than a broken ankle while the other passengers probably walked away.
