It doesn't matter that the deceased is someone's child, perhaps someone's parent.

It doesn't matter how much these images hurt and harm a family already devastated by this tragic loss.

It doesn't matter how SICK someone has to be to take these pictures.

It doesn't matter how twisted someone has to be to post these images

Why don't you relax.

When I was a kid, my friends father(an attorney) showed us the most graphic photos taken at car/truck vs. motorcycle accidents and offered a stern warning. 30 years later, every time I start to drive "spiritedly", those pictures flash across my mind and keep me in check. I want my son to see pictures of this nature and the result of reckless or inattentive driving.

+ 1. These pictures can serve as a warning to other road users. If they help to even save one person's life, the person in the car's death wasn't in vain.

Response to Wingless

Wingless- While you are completely correct that this situation deserves respect, this type of information and photos are good because it should point out to everyone, that when you are behind the wheel of a car, your one and only job is to drive and pay attention to what you are doing. Not play with radios, cell phones, Navigation, lighting cigarettes and every other foolish thing people do that distracts them from pay 100% attention.

GOD Bless the individuals family and friends and them as well who had to be the teacher of a harsh lesson. I do my best not to visit or induldge in negetive images, but in the same respect we come to this forum among other things to learn how to avoid break downs, bad buys, and expensive repairs, so accedents are no different. If it wasnt for forums as this one we would not be able to share all kinds of information that saved our lives "Spring Perch E320". Its not like we are downing the poor driver or thier driving skills, we are learning what to avoid and what not to buy, after seeing a MB fall off a bypass and land upside down on the highway, with no harm done to the driver made me want a MB years b4 I could even think I could afford one. GOD BLESS those of whom loose thier lives in anything senseless, but the key thing is we are all here to learn from something one way or another.

No California plates there. This is somewhere in Europe. I am thinking France. Check out the name and phone number on the flat bed. The car isn't a Smart.
