The B-post door gap looks much narrower at the top than the bottom. The may even be true of the A post. Bent chassis rails and probably sills.

I might be mistaken, but I think that is a pic from several years ago of a J-L lister. I think Terry Lippincott fixed it.

I first saw it this morning on Facebook. Very sad. Another large SUV in the hands of someone preoccupied with everything but driving. It'll be interesting to see if a mobile phone was a factor. This has become an epidemic in the U.S. Hopefully, the offending Hummer driver has sufficient coverage.

Yes,

all that extra equipment in a car should be left away. It only distracts you from your mobile phone !

They should ban airbags and replace them with a steel spike in the centre of the steering wheel. That might make us all drive more carefully.
