His lucky day (II)
Bill sends a couple of pix of a one-car accident out west with the subject line: Wow!
In this picture you can see where this driver broke through the guard rail on the right side of the culvert (where the people are standing on the road, pointing).
The pick-up was traveling about 75 MPH, from right to left when it crashed through the guard rail. It flipped end-over-end, bounced off and across the culvert, and landed right-side-up on the left side of the culvert facing opposite to the original direction of travel.
The 22-year-old driver and his 18-year-old passenger were unhurt except for minor cuts and bruises.
Now look at a second picture (after the break).

The second photo is boviously fake. The ground around the chain link fence in the first photo is missing in the second.

I wouldn't say the second photo is a fake. It might be fake, of course - I didn't take the picture.
But I don't think you can call it fake just by looking at these two. Having lived in Arizona, I've seen places where you could get two photos like that by just moving over a fairly short distance (100 yards, say) to change the angle.

It's taken from a different vantage point - what are you, a freakin' moron?!?

Thanks, Anonymous, for doing the obviously sensible thing and checking Snopes.
