    How does a vehicle has to look like in order to meet your criteria of getting injured?

    Imagine being in a vehicle and the windshield is pierced by a metal fence…

    I hope both injured in this accident will have a quick and full recovery.

      It doesn't . Sorry if I caused offence. My point was that the report states that the vehicle suffered major damage, which does not appear to be the case, based on the photos. Either way, serious injury resulted and I wish the victims and their families well.

    Looking at the pictures on the Cayman27 website, I do not see a vehicle with "major damage". I see a vehicle with a broken windshield, bowed inwards. There is no evidence of a sudden frontal impact to the bodywork. I would have expected the occupants to have been able to walk away.

    If it wasn't for the details given by the police, I would guess that the injured parties were pedestrians who were struck by the vehicle and who smashed into the windscreen.
