Default Car vs Tree - Tree Wins

Nope not my car thankfully

One of my good friends totaled his truck this weekend. RWD + 50mph + Loose gravel road + tree = ouch.

Amazingly he is perfectly fine, and his passenger didn't have a seatbelt, and is also miraculously fine.

Frame is bent - BAD
The box gap on driver side is about 3" and on passenger side is about 1/4"
Amazingly it still runs

To the pics...
