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...

I did that to a Honda once. If you can't drive around Trucks ,then you should stay off the road. The only person who is going to get hurt is you.

I was a near witness to a semi rolling over a Corolla. I'm not 100% on what happened because I wasn't looking at the impact. I saw the Corolla pass in front of my eyes very fast, and then heard BOOM and saw the car flattened spinning around under the trailer, then come to rest against a light pole on the other side. Took out the semi's oil pan, and I felt completely sorry for the driver that I didn't see the whole thing. I think he would've liked to know that it wasn't his fault.

The weirdest part was how there was a delay, then people started running over to see if someone was alive... as if. The car was the height of a tire turned sideways, the whole semi cab rolled over it.
