    Wednesday I was on the way to the MINI dealer to pick up some parts. The overhead sign on the highway said there was an accident a couple of exits down with the road closed. Now I know why.

    After you watch the wreck scroll it back some and watch the Cayenne in the other direction. Amazing that it was not flattened.

    The pucker factor on that must have been INSANE. Glad the injuries were minimal for a crash of that magnitude.

    Good thing that all the caps were on tightly, that much shaken soda could have made for a disaster.

    Surprising a crash like that no one was killed.
    I wonder what caused the Nissan driver to lose control in the first place?

    Wow! Looks like he didn't hit anything even after the avoidance maneuver.

    The Porsche SUV did touch the divider with the front left corner. Unfortunately those repairs will likely cost more than repairs on all of the other vehicles involved, including the semi truck.

    Repairs on a Porsche aint cheap!
