Edmunds Crash-Tests the Jeep Commander

Thankfully, Inside Line's Kelly Toepke and her husband Barry escaped this wreck with a few broken bones and their six-year-old daughter was fine. In an attempt to avoid a spinning Forester smacked by an alleged hoon, Barry ended up driving the long-term test Commander onto a grass median and into a tree. Interestingly the Toepkes' injuries (a broken ankle for him and multiple fractures in her foot) were caused by the engine coming back through the firewall, which freaks us out a little bit. Meanwhile the po-po are still looking for the hoon, who left the scene. Facking 'oun.
