Bad Wreck - 986 destroyed near JSC NASA

Prayers up for the drivers involved... drove past a terrible wreck on NASA 1 between a beautiful black 986 and a Ford pickup. 986 was tore up bad. The truck was on it's side. Lots of ambulances. Hope everyone is OK.

986's are very safe cars but definitely an uneven match, Prayers being sent.

I drove by that yesterday too, in my black 986. From the damage it looked like the pickup truck may have been partially on top of the 986. Didn't look good. Prayers for all.

Rough night here. Started with a pickup going through a red light at high speed. Destroyed 2 other cars. The driver had a suspended license and a couple outstanding warrants. No fatalities, but some changed lives.
Next wreck... a full SUV rolled over a few times down a ravine. No seat belts and I think it was 7 people on board. I flew a kid from the scene and then the driver from a small hospital an hour later. They lived, but thinking of the bills and recovery, it must be devastating. I hope they have some good support. Imagine your family happily driving home, then suddenly being spread across hospitals 100 miles apart.
