The 16-Year-Old VW Driver In This Terrible Crash Only Broke An Ankle

When you hear that a fully loaded semi plowed into the driver's side of a New Beetle, you expect this kind of damage. What you don't expect is for the driver to only suffer a broken ankle.

The VW driver posted on Reddit that he was on his way to school, stopped at a red light, and then went on green. He didn't see the semi coming from his left, running the red light.

I blacked out and the next thing I remember were a few EMTs prying my car door open.


See VW, we like thick, heavy German engineering. We don't like the built-to-a-price models you're turning out now in your Beigekrieg.
