Comment: Reference

(See in situ)


Refers to direction vehicle was traveling, where the motor landed and compares with other collisions with a tree.

The tree is pretty scarred. Notice that in other accidents the tree does not shear off. A telephone pole would shear(dead/dry & small diameter). A live tree with a wide trunk can handle the impact of a vehicle which is mostly air and sheet metal designed to crumple and absorb an impact.

BTW - I do not promote anything that is said by the author on this blog. It is the source for the photos posted above and they check out. The rest of the post goes into a number of theories.
