Hmm. Nav, cargo mat...some nice salvage items there for someone...
Of course, that's a fixed concrete pillar, versus a tree of unknown size and flexibility/recoil. An interesting mystery for us sleuths...wmquan said:I'm not a forensic expert, but if you compare these photos to the shots of the MDX's IIHS crash test, you'll notice that the 40mph offset frontal crash test produced a lot more front-end compression. The test was offset but I'd think even a full-frontal impact would produce significant compression (which of course is what the vehicle is designed to do -- sacrifice the front end to absorb the energy and preserve the occupants behind it).
