Two Yelm girls were hurt when the car they were in collided head-on Tuesday with a box truck. Here’s the aftermath. Be careful out there.

    There’s a slideshow with more pictures of this car on KIRO’s website (use the link from the puyallup river truck accident) and after seeing it I’m really surprised those girls lived. The car is totally mangled.

    I agree, JanieJones. Having worked as an EMT in L.A., and having seen similar MVA’s…I am also amazed that these two girls survived the accident at all.

    I’m so surprised they wern’t decapitated from the picture. Them are some very fortunate girls and they better thank their heavenly father for that. WOW.

    Holy Moses!! I’ve seen some nasty wrecks in my time, but WOW….this is one of the worst, and they survived it!! I wonder how they’re doing now….
    God definitely had His hands on these two girls that morning!
