High Speed + Snow Tires = FAIL

Subaru Safety Rating

One of our readers tipped us off on a post they found over at the FinalGear forums. Apparently, a friend of a FinalGear member was driving late at night, and swerved to avoid a deer. The outcome? The car hit two tress, flipped twice, and everyone survived.

The driver of the car had a harness bar installed, and claims that it worked wonders in helping him and his co-occupants survive. We’re not really sure how much just a harness bar would truly help, but at lease they’re ok.

I’ve decided to post this up, just because it goes to show how tough these STi’s truly are. I’ve attached a number of pictures taken by the driver, which were posted to his Photobucket account.

I’m still pondering a couple of things though…

  1. Why is the car wearing Bridgestone Blizzak Winter Tires?
  2. Did our driver really try to avoid a deer, or did we just encounter some lift-off oversteer while running out of road?

Original thread can be found here. More pictures after the jump.

  4. After you and your doctor have realized what is the the source and the nature of
    this problem, the dermatologist will find it easier
    to prescribe to you a drug that is fit for your
    condition from inside and outside. Another method, Cool Touch technology,
    can be used for treating everything from acne scars
    to liver spots, while therapies like Relume can largely if
    not entirely reduce the appearance of stretch marks. For
    instance, if there are issues with veins on your legs, the best procedure is
    certainly different from the facial veins.
