Holy Crap! The passenger was lucky to live after that one. To bad for the driver though. I wonder if the drivers door missing mixed with no seatbelt was a factor in the drivers death?

Yea, Focuses don't do very well against semis. I have a friend who was hit by one that ran a red light. Destroyed the car, and messed up his legs.

Err... nothing does well against a semi. Except maybe one of those heavy duty F-150s. I had one pull up next to me at a light recently, and that beast was twice the height of my Focus. The noise of its idling engine can easily be mistaken for that of an 18-wheeler's.

man that sucks, but thankfully the passengers made it out... i could only imagine the heartache this has caused their families...

but yeah, ford trucks are pretty stout... my friend saw a collision between an f-250 and a telephone company truck (with the boom lift) and the f-250 ripped it in half, while only smashing up the front end of the truck a little bit...

yea, a super duty would probably do nicely against a semi, but i still think the semi would win, especially if its full of cargo.
