Just Walked Away?

Most amazing thing is the info that the driver survived. Perhaps he was thrown or jumped from the car early in the incident? Very hard to imagine walking away from this, especially in pre-safety glass days.

Holy Moly

That auto looks totally wrecked, hope he wasn't hurt too bad.

Glasses?

Maybe the driver needed to buy glasses?
