The Lambo accident might be a fit of Jealousy. Either the car itself or may the co- passenger in the car? Plus there are quite a few ladies around so it just might have been that.

As far as I know - One is not allowed to move stuff / cars around in case of an accident in the UAE till a complete survey is done by the cops.. DXB residents please confirm.

Momentum generated can make tires roll even further.

Or..you might be right.

Thats not even a proper road; Its an access road to the JBR (Jumeira Beach Residency) parking bays..One of the best residential parking lots i've been in..some real beauties dwell here.

I am guessing that this is not the place where the accident took place. This rather looks like a yard or something where they keep cars that have met with accidents. The other cars parked on the sides seem to be damaged aswell, the toyota sedan and the hatch in one of the photos is also parked in the same lot, another toyota hatch (silver one) , the first in the line of cars also has some major damage near the back door.

LOL, i surely doesn't seem like a junk yard!

What it seems to me is that, the Mustang was really goin fast on the road you see 4th pic, lost control or so and ran into the cars parked in the lot.

dear friend, a yard doesnt necessarily means a junk yard. Havent you seen the accident vehicles parked in police stations after being towed away from the accident spot. Also the theory on this car ramming into the cars parked doesnt at all seem like a possiblity since the golden sedan is damaged on the right side and the mustang seems to be pointing in a different direction, even if u say the stang crashed into the toyotalfrom the right side and came to halt in the opposite direction, then how do u explain the damage to the silver color hatch right in the begining of the parking lot. if only the golden sedan and white hatch was involved then wot you said could be a possiblity, but since there another car also , the white hatch which "co-incidentally" happens to have major damage is also there, atleast to me it looks as if its some place where damaged cars are kept either for repair, or for police or insurance procedures or something of that sorts.

So if the Mustang didnt lose control and run into the cars, how is the tire a few meters away?? It must have hit something for sure. And even if they did just dump the cars there why didn't they bother to move the tire??

There are just my thoughts, nothing more.

BTW, the golden car and the white one is parked in an angled way and it seems from the pic that getting hit on the right side is a possibility.

The car was turned into a wreckage. By the time the medics reached the spot, the driver was already crushed to death and the medics had to cut portions of the car with special machinery to get the driver's body out.

I was actually talking about this post when I refered to the S class!

Reminds me of another S-class Mercedes crash into an unyielding metal-reinforced pillar.

Dodi Al-Fayed's metallic black Mercedes S280 crashed into the 13th pillar on the left, inside the Pont de l'Alma tunnel at 00:23 on 31st August 1997.

The pillar was made of unyielding steel-reinforced concrete. The Mercedes-Benz S280 (W140) crumpled against it at 105 km/h,
bounced off, spun 180 degrees counterclockwise and came to rest pointing in the opposite direction, its piercing Bosch horn screaming continuously into the dark tunnel.

The legal speed limit in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel is 50 km/h.

The driver Henri Paul and his employer Dodi Fayed lost their lives on the spot. Lady Diana Spencer (Princess of Wales, UK) passed away three and a half hours later in hospital.

None of the four occupants of the car had worn seat belts.

The only survivor was Dodi Fayed's bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones. The passenger-side airbag deployed and saved his life.

But he suffered serious head injuries. Many bones in his face shattered, many were crushed as his face got flattened.

French oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Luc Chikhani reconstructed his face from his family photographs using 150 pieces of titanium to hold the bones together and recreate the original shape.

Within a year, Rees-Jones's face was nearly back to normal.

You're right karthik247. And the S-klasse Mercedes crash into a pillar, that I was reminded of, happened in Paris, France. So, I guess it's off-topic. Sorry.
