My Parents Totaled Their 2006 ZXW :(

Friday night they went to Florence to visit my uncle in the hospital and they got in a wreck. They arent really too sure what happened. They can't really remember because it happened really fast. The cop said it looked like they had a blow out. But the Michelins they had had less than 20k on them and my dad said it didnt feel like a blow out. But anyways, they wound up going into a guard rail. My best friends family came to my house and said my parents were in a "little" accident, but the car wasnt driveable at the moment. So I am thinking it was a little fender bender, something not very bad. Later when they were in the hospital my dad sent me all the pics of the crash. Oh and by the way they are 100% fine. My mom was sore Saturday and my dad is still a little sore because it all happened on his side. But yea, no broken bones or anything bad. Pretty neat! Ford for the win!!! Here are the pictures:








This is the fender, I dont know if you guys remember the thread I posted about bumping into my moms car a couple weeks ago, but this is where a mark was. lol




They hit so hard it ripped the strut tower assembly and the whole wheel off. It was stuck to the guard rail and my dad said nobody could get it out.

At first when my friends mom said the car might be totaled (after she said it was a small wreck) I was like well I will take the bumpers, the rims, and some other stuff. I would just sell my EAPs I just bought and still sitting in boxes. But when I saw the pics I was like well....only the back right rim is good. lol
