The impact of the collision was so immense that the SUV was reduced to a twisted, mangled heap of metal. The front portion of the vehicle became entangled with the stationary container truck. The force of the impact was so great that it took the assistance of a hydra machine, typically used for moving heavy goods, to extricate the SUV from its nightmarish predicament.
