Ariel Atom crashes into a house not far from here

May have been the only one in Belgium, can't imagine there are more than a handful around here.

Funny to see the "crumple zone" in action. Looks weird.

Anyway, apparently a technical malfunction caused the crash, not so much driver error. Not like we'll ever know for sure obviously. Not too surprising, the driver broke both legs.

looks like the clipped the frame for easier access.

it actually did pretty darn well, those 5 points are so much better in crashes.

Wall 1 Atom 0

That's a pretty strong wall, or a really weak car, it doesn't look like the wall took any damage.

I wonder what kind of "technical malfunction" was there. "The car was mechanically too fast, so I understeered into a wall"?

it looks like they had to cut out that right-side beam...I wonder if it got pushed in towards the driver

Any word on how fast we was going? It appears to be completely fucked...Probably would have fared better if he'd hit a parked car or something instead of a brick fucking wall

Perhaps a stronger car, imagine the Atom in a heads on, you'll just crumple if you can't even put a dent on a brick wall. The impact is strong enough to fold up the car, but it wasn't strong enough to shatter the window!
