Got this in an email....and I don't know which it is for sure, but I have a strong opinion....

You decided....(I left them captioned as the email came)....
______________________

Look at the picture above and you can see where this guy broke through the guardrail, right side where the
people are standing on the road (pointing). The pick-up was traveling from right to left when it crashed through
the guardrail, flipped end-over-end, across the culvert outlet,and landed right side up on the left side of the culvert,
facing the opposite direction from which he was traveling.

Now look at the 2ND picture below...



If this guy didn't believe in God before, do you suppose he believes now?

It is real. You can see where he impacted the guardrail, but it looks like he slid along the rail and then off the other side. You can see there is damgae to the lip of the rail and another post damaged.

Oh, sorry....I'm sure the accident is real, and happened like it says....it's the giant drop in the second photo I think was added. Maybe not though.....could be the luckiest SOB since OJ was acquitted. :D

I would expect the medics to be tied off if that was real.

They seem pretty non-chalant hanging on that edge between an unstable truck and questionable footing.

I feel like it's one of those bar room games where you look at the two pictures and find the differences........ and there's too many to be real.

FAKE

Everyone realizes those pics could be taken at different times right? They're clearly at different angles and one is not supposed to be a "zoom" of the other.

Even the worse of fakers would be able to "avoid" the obvious differences, like people in one pic not another, etc.:)sphss

For sure! Two photos were taken.

I was looking at the distance from the fence to the truck in the first and comparing it to the second angle. I'm not photography expert, but I know some lenses flatten out distances like that, which could be what's happening.

Everything in the pics line up with Google Earth.
The roadway, the home in the background, the locations the pics were taken.
The ele shows roadway at 3485', the arroyo bottom at 3320', so that is a drop.

I cannot imagine being between that truck and the cliff edge...

What??

Why bring real logic and homework into this, when speculation is so much easier and fun?:D

Real. That PCC guardrail would have launched the truck a long way.

Two blocks from my house some punk in mom's jag at 60MPH missed a turn hit a regular 6" curb and cleared a 3' high shrub, about 7' away from the curb, on his way to the backyard pool.:D

That area does exist.. We've been on it more times than I care to count. If you drive from St George, UT to Lake Powell, you go right past this spot climbing out of Hurricane, UT.
