Just got this from a friend in Perth. Can't vouch for the veracity of the story but the pics tell the story pretty well.
VU SS torn in half @ 150kmh !!
At about 6pm tonight the ute below was travelling down a 50kmh zone @ an eye witness estimate between 150-200.
They have gone through 1 of Kalgoorlie notorious spoon drains and launched into the air , upon bouncing back to earth something broke and the driver lost control.
They have jumped the curb and launched passenger side on into the tree pictured.
It has literally torn the ute in half , seperating fuel tank, rear firewall , tray , bumpers and tray liner.
In the photo from side on of the cab you can see the fuel tank on the ground between the police.
The owner of the ute is just 21 and hasnt had the car for long , he was not driving his mate was at age 17 , in one of the pics there is a Cougar can on the ground next
to the car and witnesses say they appeared to be drunk.
Initial reports were the owner was out of the ute yelling at his mate 'look what you have done to my ute' , the driver was laying on the ground.
Both got away with only scratches and the driver had a bruised shoulder and is also getting charged with reckless driving.
