That must be one fantastically strong windshield frame. I never would have guessed.

The Model A is what's called a "Sport Coupe" It looks like a convertible, but the top doesn't fold down. The door hinges go to the top of the windshield post, so it is much stronger than a roadster.

The way the house faces, that must have been a corner. I suspect the T either didn't see the A or couldn't stop. So the A hit the T on the front drivers side fender and rolled the T on the side while the A did a summersault.

Plus the Sport coupe has full window frames around the side windows like the coupe doors.
They are coupe doors.

Right, a Sport Coupe. I was trying to remember what that top style was called. I still would have expected the door frames to have at least visibly bent in a rollover like that. As it is, it looks like both cars are just comically toppled and have a good chance of driving again soon. I dare say rolling the A back onto its wheels looks like it could cause more damage than has already been done.

Anyone know what that bar behind the back axle of the T is all about?

Tim, the T had accessory bumpers both front and back.

Fortunately the Model A had safety glass in the windshield - one good deed Henry Ford did that probably saved a bunch of people from bleeding to death after accidents.

That T won't move with both right side wheels broken.

This must have happened at 10:10 in the morning. Do you know why?

As usual, the crowd is so interested in seeing gore, they're missing a chance to learn mechanical things on the other side of the car.
