Mustang Mach 1: The Ultimate Tree Hugger?

Crash

This is not normal, nor is it a pretty sight. But it happened nonetheless.

What you’re looking at are the remains of a Ford Mustang Mach 1 after its failed attempt to mate with a tree. Ok, so that’s not what really happened, but it’s a fact that this Mach 1 is now a completely totaled and twisted piece of metal. The accident reportedly happened in Pretoria, South Africa as the driver somehow lost control while going too fast. Man and car then smashed into what turned out to be a very strong tree. In fact, the car is completely wrapped around said tree. No word on the driver’s condition, but it’s doubtful he escaped without injury.
