    G4 head-on collision fatality

    Heard about this accident on a Cincinnati radio station. It was a head-on collision...but the right (passenger) side of the G4 front end visible in the first picture doesn't look badly damaged. I suspect this was an "offset/overlap" front end collision where the driver's side of the front end took the majority of the impact.

    Edit - Just saw another picture of the damage...man that isn't looking good in the second photo.

    Investigators say the driver of a 2016 Kia Soul tried to pass another vehicle as she was driving south on the road, and the a driver of a 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage, who was coming northbound, could not avoid a collision.

    Officials identified the driver of the Mitsubishi Mirage as 21-year-old Henry Finney of Madison, Indiana.

    An ambulance drove Finney to the King's Daughters' Hospital in Madison, and that's where died from his injuries.

    The driver of the Kia Soul was taken to the same hospital but later sent by Air Care to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

    According to the press release, the driver of the Kia Soul was in serious but stable condition.

    Indiana State Police say both drivers were wearing seat belts.

    Investigators say they believe improper passing and traveling at a high rate of speed are factors to the crash.

    This crash is part of an ongoing investigation and toxicology reports are pending at this time.

    That is sad!

    Sadly, the Laws of Physics don't work in the Mirage's favor.

    It's a shame somebody had to die because somebody else was just in a big damned hurry. I am convinced that a lot of people just don't know what those two solid yellow stripes down the center of the road mean, as I see people seemingly ignoring them all the time.

    This also recently happened to a former coworker of mine. Was having a bad day, passed in a no-passing zone, ran right into the front of an oncoming truck. He died instantly. He was the father of a couple little kids.

    Very sad. Head-on collisions are pretty much the worst of the worst.

    I hate seeing that the person at fault survives and the guy not being a retard doesn't. That's not really fair. See it all the time with impaired drivers too.

    Me, too. Family of four in the minivan dies, drunk guy in the bro-dozer winds up with a sore shoulder and an 'airbag burn'.

    Wish the estimated speeds were shown in the article. That much impact damage Im guessing 50+ mph for the idiot illegally passing? If it was less say 40 mph Id be concerned about Mirage safety. 21 year old kid, had everything in front of him. I hope the idiot gets 10 years in state prison for manslaughter.
