Jennifer-Holland-CarHere at The News Wheel, we talk a lot about the latest and greatest features of cars, from luxurious seats to the interactive infotainment systems. What really matters in a vehicle, though, is its ability to protect you if the worst should happen. If it’s a fender-bender or a catastrophic collision, we all want to be able to survive what the road throws at us.

Before you roll your eyes, we need you to realize exactly how bad the accident was. James Gunn took time away from his preparations for Guardians of the Galaxy II to tell the story, and it sounds like it is a miracle that any car could protect a passenger from it. The Audi, which the director did not identify by model, was rear-ended by a tow truck on the Pacific Coast Highway. The director’s use of the word “slammed” in the Facebook post implies that there was no attempt by the truck to stop, and what happened next definitely suggests that. Not only did Holland’s car hit the truck in front of it, it actually slid under the bumper, popping the truck’s rear wheels from the ground and crushing the car. Gunn goes on to say that the car was completely wrecked – except for the compartment that Holland was seated in.
