This happened to my friend. Just hoping you guys be careful out there. I've read many times of people asking how to control the car in the rain and stuff, or they almost spun out.. etc. Just keep speeds down and THIS won't happen!

He's okay now. He currently has a broken arm, but he suffered from a coma right after this happened.

Yes, luckily he was alone when this happened.. or else you would probably have seen some blood. He JUST dropped someone off right before this happened!

Yeah, ran into a tree at 80. But he doesn't even really remember exactly how fast. That is what the police told him. He just woke up in the hospital not knowing what had happened.

You guys need to make sure and change your tires when they are getting bald. Not worth it to stretch the extra mile.

Do you see the foot pedals in the 5th pic?! That's scary as hell... the whole front is ripped out from a passenger side impact.
