    I have seen plenty of crashes happen infront of me and I have always been very curious (not excited) about them.. I am not the rubber necking type... I actually come back later and find the car as its a weird thing seeing seeing the mangled up car.. I then build theories and take photos just for my own self.. Actually its one of the reason I drive like a grandpa and don't mess about.. Anyways I have a small collection so thought I should share.

    Was woken up by a loud noise.. couldn't see anything outside my flat but then I went down and found this :Grin:

    Story: The driver was walking about smoking, completely sober and was all good. said he lost his brakes and came straight in from the roundabout into this residential street and when the street ended he simply went in the bushes after taking off a bollard.. I honestly don't believe his story and think either someone else was driving or he accelerated out of control as the car didn't go too far in... see the blue path that he allegedly took and the red is the impact.

    Question: Will the passenger airbag deploy if there was no one in that seat?

    Probably driving too fast, waste of a car do like those IS200's.

    The passenger airbag will usually deploy if someone is sitting, it detects if someone is sitting on the seat and I think it might be weight related, not sure about older cars though, they might just depeloy regardless based on impact sensor.

    I actually like the IS too but the 300 which UK never got. wouldn't mind owning one but its too old now.. they are the ones that started the Altezza style clear lens craze for rear lights.. every Civic, alto corolla and corsa in the world had clear lenses for brake lights at one point in time :Grin:

    As @exec said, bag won't deploy unless someone is sat on that seat.

    as I suspected, he lied.
    Police/Firebrigade all asked him and he kept saying he was the only one in car but he looked too normal to have come out of such a big crash.. no airbag residue whatsoever and they let him off

    You should start your own TV series "Car Crash Investigation" :Grin:

    It does look like someone else was driving his car, maybe uninsured, they legged it to keep out of trouble and he hung around :sherlock:

    can you imagine how much paperwork the driver of this unmarked police car had to fill after this? but yeah I think Lambo was in pretty good nick considering the impact was on the door which most normal cars won't take as lightly

    do you think his regular car insurance would have gone up? im guessing police cars are insured differently otherwise its such a high-risk job that if its starts affecting their normal life, no one would dare to get in..

    How about this.. happened back home.. no one knows why the guy lost control but it was ironic that he crashed into the entrance of a Honda showroom.. everyone walked away except the car.. I must add, Accord was not sold officially so this must have been a very expensive import.

    That looks quite heavily modified, probably crashed because of those horrible nasty chrome wheels!
