I guess, the guy hit it so much speed at the start of the barrier, that he plowed right through it.

The pic has been taken in such an angle that it looks like a trick. If they had taken a pic from the front of the car, we could have seen where the barrier started.

From the second pic...

1. See the front door... It seems that the car has been pushed back... probably a impact from the left front of the vehicle.

A very weird accident..but can happen...

This guys left has simply been punched by the safety barrier.. Looks like he hit at at weak point in the barrier and let the steel beam into the car.

Man, the car's been totally shish-kabab'ed! I just hope Russians have steering wheel's on the right side (like India, UK) otherwise the driver might have faced the same fate!

In high-speed, high impact crashes, weird things can happen as the laws of physics take a turn for the worse.....

atleast the driver is not hit cut by the iron barrier, as there are no blood stains on it. But cannot rule out the injury of the driver.

It's possible if the car hits the begining of the railing. Usually divider railing start off in a "V" formation where the left and right side of the rails are joined.

But what if they weren't? Your car could hit one side of the railing and due the force of impact, the whole railing could penetrate through the car (from the headlight/wheel arch area) and come out of the boot.

This was no side impact, as the rear door would have got sliced if the railing was to cut through it.

Notice the bar sticking out from the rear left wheel arch. That is probably the front extension of the one sticking out of the boot. The car did not go straight through the guard rail.
