"They also reported that Tegtmeyer miraculously escaped alive because the dent in the side of the Subaru caused by the crash created a hollow space that allowed the vehicle to roll over him without crushing him to death."

Wow Actually, my dad saved someone'* life who was in a similar situation. Still amazing, though, no doubt about that...

True, very possible. Willwren put doubt in my mind that that was real...

If we examine the crash the PT cruiser hit the wagon on the drivers side (left obviously) door/pillar area. The wagon started spining so the front of the car was pointed at the camera, meanwhile the car is rolling. The car rolled ALMOST one whole turn before it hit the pedestrian so the bottom of the car was the first contact with the ped. Then the RIGHT side of the car was on him, then the roof of the car. The car came to rest on its roof, with the pedestrian below it. The roof looked pretty much intact right after the crash.

Its possible that the car rolled a bit more after the camera stopped so the left side was on top of him...making a little life saving cave. But that would be after the car landed on you three times before. It obviously happened, and is real, because people said they know people that heard about it...but it truely must be a miracle.
