  1. Here is an article of a fatality accident that happened in a small town in Southern Illinois. Looks to be the same year, color, body style as my Stang. Which makes it even more scary to me.

    WHITEASH - A driver was killed in an accident Friday afternoon on Fowler School Road about half a mile east of Old Frankfort Road.

    Williamson County sheriff's deputies were sent to the scene at 4:32 p.m., according to a news release from the department.

    Preliminary investigation shows the car left the road and hit several trees. The car, pulled from a wooded area, was crushed beyond recognition.

    Bystanders said they did not know the identity of anyone in the car, but some said they believed there was more than one person in the car when it crashed.

    The name of the driver was not released Friday night.

    Williamson County Coroner Mike "Junior" Burke was not available. Deputy Coroner Tony Fleege said the family had been notified and funeral arrangements are pending.

    However, he declined to release the driver's name.

    Fleege said he could verify one young man was killed in the accident, and two passengers were taken to area hospitals

    The accident is being investigated by Williamson County sheriff's and coroner's personnel. Johnston City police, as well as Johnston City and Pittsburg firefighters, assisted.
  2. Damn, it looks like it was well kept too. The 10-holes look super clean!

    Sorry to hear the driver died, hopefully he deserved it, so-to-speak. Horrible thing to say, but it's a little easier to swallow knowing that the person brought it upon themselves rather than being a completely innocent victim.

  3. That car had to have been hauling ass when it left the roadway, it's sad when anyone loses their life, this should serve as a reminder to all of us to be as safe as we can when driving. RIP to the person whom lost their life.
  4. "The car was crushed beyond recognition", and here it is we can tell you every option the car had.

    I'm sorry the guy died, but it looks like he was acting a fool on that road and its sad. I really cant tell from the pic, but it looks like a narrow road with a lot of trees and thats a recipe for disaster.
  5. I know I am going to get flamed for this but....is it even a mustang??

    Because those rims have more than 10 holes. Could it be a dodge daytona?? I know the parking lights look like a mustang but the tail lights and rims look like a daytona.
  6. are you serious? you did not just say that.
  7. Hmm, looks like 10 to me. The tail light actually appears to be missing (likely fell off or was shattered). That looks like an LX tail hanging over the lights.
  8. please turn over keys and registration to your mustang to the nearest stangnet representative


    i get the idea of the cars being similar in a few ways, but no...far from being a dodge daytona
  9. :rlaugh: of course thats a mustang
  10. justabigkid guess u dont know 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 thats 10 and it has 10 holes on the rim. it could not be a dodge there is no way one could get going that fast to mess up a car like that. people need to think about racing or flying on a open road. pray for the others in the car.

    Ten! Ten holes on the rim! Ha ha ha!
  12. As a matter of fact i was one of the passengers in the car and it pisses me off that you can even say something like that about someone you didnt even know.that was my best friend and he was only 17 for a week.And if it wasnt for another on coming car coming up over the hill we wouldnt have wrecked.thanks for your lil ****ing input though really made my ****ing day.FYI I was right behind him when he took his last breath.
  14. i wish there were more understanding people like you on blogs like this.i was in the car and that personally has been the hardest thing i have ever been threw
  15. Sorry about your friend, but based on the information and the pic shown in the news report (FROM 2008 I MIGHT ADD!!!), it seems pretty clear that speed was the factor in the crash here, not the oncoming car? Any car moving fast enough to leave the ground and eradicate itself the way that car did, is moving too fast for the conditions of the road. Tragedy for certain, but let's lay the blame where it's needs to lay.....on the driver.

  17. Exactly. I lost a very good friend the same way a few years ago. He had a lightly modded 95 z28 and clipped a driveway culvert and lost control hitting a tree at what was estimated to be 110+ mph. It was terrible and he was a good dude, but it was 100% his fault.
