    The Yukon looks like it held up well. I hope nobody has any permanent injuries.

    It seems like the driver is also fully aware of how the media report things and has provided some good quotes:

    "I was unsure if the gasoline in that car was stable and worried that his car would catch fire."

    We have another thread on this same crash, if the moderator would like to link them.

    Seems odd that a hard impact on the right front fender (not quarter panel - those are only in the rear) would cause more apparent damage to the left front.

    I'm guessing that the Yukon came from the right on the crossing street, hit the X, spinning it 90º and Yukon's broken front wheel caused it to loop around to the left, ending up there at the end of a trail of debris.

    I wonder if all the doors opened automatically when it sensed the crash?
