Default EVERYONE READ THIS

Derrick (or any mod) feel free to move this to the V6 Gen Discussion area if you'd like, or sticky it for all to be reminded of. I posted here to get the attention of this entire section, since I know some don't read the sub section.

This is why I, along with many others, will continue to harp about legal (and smart) driving on the streets. This was NOT a street race, just a case of poor judgement that cost lives. It was on the Roush site, but I wanted everyone here to see it. For all of those who like to say "I wasn't racing, but I like to go fast on open roads when nobody is around." Single car accident when a girl lost control at the car's top speed.

Be smart guys. No amount of fun is worth ending like this.


......................................

The story is a 19 year old girl was driving at roughly 120 mph with her boyfriend when she lost control and hit a tree. He was ejected from the car (See caption prior to the second pic.) She was burned up when the car exploded and the roof collapsed on her. Please take this as a lesson to ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS be careful and respect these cars no matter how good of a driver you may THINK you are.

This is a picture of the rear of the car...notice this is where the engine is sitting.



The guy that was ejected was the passenger and this is a picture of the drivers side. Notice his pants hanging there that were apparently wrapped around the radiator and ripped off as he was thrown out the drivers side.



And here are the rest of the pics

My god, you can't even tell its a mustang if it wasnt for the wheels....

This morning I watched as a 05+ mustang made a terrible decision to try to make a left turn onto a major 6 lane road, in traffic. Didn't end well, the mustang looked totaled...

Always drive smart!

Wow. Just wow. Thank you LiL.


Edit: I vote to sticky. Reminders like this are often quickly forgotten, and its something i would want to come back to.
