Looks like a pretty good frontal offset collision. The passenger compartment held up well. :thumb:

It would be interesting to get the crash data- what did it hit, how fast was it going, etc. Looks very significant, but the passenger compartment has held up nicely. Reminds me of the post here recently where one of our members was hit head on and it held up well.

Poor Acadia. Hardly had a life at all.

Would you mind sneaking into that vehicle and removing one of the chrome trim rings from the rear temperature controls for me? ;D

WOW that was a bad day for someone. Held up well on the inside it seems. Looks like it didn't push the dash in :thumb:.

Check ebay in a month, probably find it on there for scarps

I read somewhere, don't remember where (here?), about a guy, his wife and baby that were in a collision just as they were crossing some tain tracks. Apparently, some idiots were speeding across ina stolen car and became airborn when they hit the rail crossing and hit his Acadia head on (maybe offset). But anyway, he and his family escaped unharmed. He praised the Acadia for protecting him and his loved one. I think I did read it here. Could this be his Acadia?

One of these days... my luck will change. ;) If I could just locate the fourth piece of the trim ring that broke in my Acadia, I'd glue the sucker back together and be content with that. Until then, I shall pursue every junked Acadia that gets posted on this forum. ;D

Here is one more pic, and look Web it's got an eye out too ;D JK seriously though I hope the driver and passengers are O.K. Car accidents suck!! I keep my eye's open in the local papers for the story.

I am guessing that is jersey wall damage. Just my guess


But then it looks like it went offroading because of the mud on the lower fascia, and the mud puddle under the front of it.

Since the damage is lower on the car than if it had taken a hit from another vehicle, you think it's a hit on the ARMCO then into the median to add the mud? I'd go with that.

While we're reconstructing, I'd like to see the passenger side of it. Usually on an offset crash it will rotate and hit the other vehicle or the fixed object with the opposite side.

Wall/barrier theory is good at this point since there is no apparent paint transfer from another vehicle on that beautiful blue paint.

6, how about calling CSI? We need some evidence! ;D

The pass side was scratch free, my guess would be that this is the work of a guard rail or median of some sort ???

No interior intrusion; although the driver door was ajar; just makes me feel that much safer; any chance the engine entered the cab area?

Can't say for sure but I doubt it. Most vehicles are designed to have the engine drop out of the bottom of the engine compartment instead of coming into the passenger area. This appears to be to far off center for either of those things to happen.

That picture brings back memories of my Bonneville. Two vehicles gone before their time. That Acadia took a good hit!
