I don't even want to guess what this guy was trying to do on a city street to end up like this!!!

Be nice to know what the commentator was saying :))
66 year old woman, lightly injured when she drifted to the right because of inattention to the road and hit a tree. She got out of the car on her own but was treated for her injuries later in a Heidelberg hospital. Damage to the car 20,000 Euros.

I think the tree had a part in it LOL
Large trees and sports cars do not mix well......trees almost always win. We have a large oak not too far from my home with 4 crosses at the bottom. Hope the driver of this car survived.

I'm always impressed by how well these cars protect the driver given there relative size.

Yeah ... My buddy's Alfa Romeo Mito after a chance encounter with a rural oak tree:


It protected him amazingly well, considering. But he could have been a paraplegic with just a hair less luck—required extensive repair to his spine due to two crushed vertebrae. Happily, he's recovered almost 100% from the ordeal.
