Yeah.... the drivers windshield post folded first as the car went under at the mid point of the trailer. Then when the car met the trucks under the trailer the impact compressed and roled the motor up to the point the top of the engine was near the windshield, rolling the dash board/firewall onto their laps.

When they cut the windshield post and released the front end to fall back forward, the cut opened over 2 feet. The post is a very important part of the safey cage, when it gives prior to the impact, bad things happen.

Chris is home with family <was on the passanger side> and Beth is looking at 4-6 month before they think she will be able to start learning to walk again. I honestly and not sure how she could have lived. After seeing the car, I was able to answer many of the questions about some of her injuries.
