Thumbs up Rear-end collision

This is great, we responded to an accident on one of our local busy streets to find a rear-end collision. The impact was so bad that the rear axle of the front vehicle was up under the rear floorboard. From the fire truck I could see a man seated in the rear minivan and his face was covered in what I thought was blood. It turned out to be a clown on his way to a party in full costume. No one was hurt but the air bag is something you've got to see!!

Was he putting on his Make-up while driving?

No Baja Daza he was just not paying attention to where he was going. That is his face print on the air bag. You can even see the 2 blue stars that he had around his eyes. He totaled 2 cars in this little mishap, so keep this in mind if you get that vette your dad brought home. I see much worse than this all the time, just thought everyone would get a kick out of the impression on the air bag.

I think you have me confused with Tommy, HyperBaja...

It's obvious he wasn't paying attention...He was pobably clowning around.

And I was only trying to inject some dry humor in the above post.

Sorry for the mistaken ID. But maybe Hyperbaja will read this and take notes. Here is another picture from a little different angle.

Clown? OK - I see it now. At first, I thought that it was Tammy Faye Baker.....
