Unhappy Ford Escort Crash

My buddy Ryan's Ford Escort crashed yesterday when he was going home. It was a 1.9L inline 4. He accidently missed a red signal and the next moment a Chrysler 300 is a little too close to him at around 60 kmph. It hit him on the driver's door and as you can see from the pics the car was totally wrecked and even his seat was twisted. But fortunately, Ryan escaped unhurt with only a few bruises here and there.
Also they had to cut open the roof to extract him out since the door couldn't be opened. But the hood was scratchless and hence the engine. But he'll be giving the car to the junkyard as it was already over 10 years old.
Now to come out of such an accident without any major injury after being hit by a tank... I mean a Chrysler 300 is purely God's grace and Ford's structural engineering. I had driven that car a lot and we all had many good memories of it. :(

Good lord, that wreck looks DREADFUL!!!

Thank god he survived, because, looking at that picn without knowing what happened, I would have guessed the driver would have had serious injuries.
