    Lost another car today.

    I have to pick up another dead soldier tomorrow. I don't know all the details but I believe a pickup made a left turn in front of a Mirage. The entire lh front corner of the car is wiped out. I'm assuming it's gonna be another write off. No broken bones or anything major from this one. Thinking back, I don't think anyone has really been seriously hurt out of all the wrecked Mirages I've seen at work over the past 5 years.

    I guess forced low hp/speed backhandedly helps, safety wise.

    They need a high visibility jacket and/or buggy whip like pickups have in coal mines so they don't get squished by the huge dump trucks.

    Maybe. The cvt is probably ok in this one as long as it didn't get pushed into the steering rack and crack the case.
    Everyone's been lucky to have not been in any high speed accidents, but anytime your hit unexpectedly you'll be hurting.

    Just out of curiosity...what was the speed of the impact? Looks like no airbags deployed.
