Now, look at the arm....the shirt and arm itself arent wrinkled, torn, or even bloody. It's almost as if the arm was cropped in the pic to freak us out. I'm not a paramedic or crash expert, but wouldn't a huge steel bar and peices of a vette tearing through you at least get SOME blood on you arm or put it in a different spot in the car when your body is severed in two? Here's another observation on "undamaged" things in this pic...look at the rear wheel thats most visible. Unless the pic is at an angle that's throwing my perspective off, that trailer's bumper would have made contact with the wheel and suspention, yet the wheel appears to be sitting undamaged and at the proper angle and everything. Again, how could this be possible? With these inconsitancies, I'm not sure this pic is completely real.
not to mention the rear facia doesn't even look the slightest bit torn up.

I don't know why some of you are still questioning the accident, the newspaper article was already posted earlier in this thread, it was a real accident!

Look closely at the left rear wheel (first photo). There is tire skid/scuff of at least 12" (look at the top of the orange cone to the rear tire). With anti-lock and the slight offset, my guess is one of two possibilities:

The car(s) ahead of him came to an abrupt stop and he reacted by swerving around, onto the shoulder. Unfortunately a truck was in the spot he needed to be to avoid rear-ending the guy in front of him.

Or this is a flat out suicide, but given the skid/scuff, I doubt that.

JMHO,
D

There would be skid marks with anti lock brakes. ABS does not prevent the wheels from locking, instead they pulse them so that they lock and then unlock so that you get the optimum slip ratio out of the tire and the highest braking force that you can get. Meaning that there would not be a constant trail but you would notice if he was on the ABS.

I did not however notice the mark that C5D pointed out. Good catch.

my condolences are with the driver's family. i wish them all the best. it's a real wake up call seeing accidents like this. it reminds you that no one is invincible, no matter what they drive.

anyway...i've seen alot of photoshops, and a lot of really good photoshops....and in my honest opinion....you'd have to be an absolute freakin hollywood pro to be able to do something like that. to me, the picture is too seamless. everything seems to fit.

Just a thought, since there were no appearent skidmarks, it could be possible that the vette hit the truck and the truck dragged the vette a little ways before stopping, where as the skid marks would be out of picture..... just my 2c


Condolenses to the family.....
