Looks like it used to be a 1919-20 Coupe

Apparently he wasn't using MMO or that wouldn't have happened.

Probably texting while driving.

I think you are right Tim...

Sick to think about how that cowl got shoved forward and how the A-pillar got taken out...

I bet it took more than JB Weld to put the driver back together after that encounter the the plate glass windshield.
Part of my Grandfather's internship was crewing an ambulance at IU Medical School prior to safety glass.Ghastly stories.
At least most of the road carnage I helped gather up when I dabbled as a deputy sheriff was more or less intact.

??!? What DID happen ? Any clues from the Bangor historical folks ? If it was a collision, the fenders and running gear look fairly unscathed. Ran into a beam at windshield height ? Tree fell on it ? What ?!?

I think that is a train in the background.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Jim Eviston on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 02:35 pm:

....that somehow just caught a piece of it at windshield post height.

More I look at it the more it looks like a roll-over.

Closer look and a little cheating reveals not train in background.
The brick street is wet and slimy.
The cowl damage and steering gear pulled way up like that may have been done to extricate the driver.
The front end damage does not seem severe enough to be enough impact to cause that.
I was going to call the Bangor History Center but they are closed right now.

Terrorist or mafia bombing. What train?

The guy in the second photo is typing the accident report that will have to be turned in to the Boss or the Police. He is using what appears to be a Remington portable typewriter!

Remington model 1 portable. Those things are horrible for typing in my opinion... The keys fold out with a little lever on the side.

Or might me a 2, I see now theres the long hook supports on the sides of the type bars...

(Sorry for OT)

You know, those scratches will buff right out....

I say he hit the post right there.
Most of the front end bent back after the hit.
The coupe bounced up and bent the rad back and sent the driver, column and cowl forward.
I know I'm incorrect...
Uff da. Nasty crash.

Wasn't hit in the front. Axle looks OK and headlights look OK. He got hit from the side - kid running a stop sign

Could it be that no one was in the car? How about if the car were parked and sideswiped by a hit and run driver? That would explain the damage to the right front fender (hitting the post after being pushed out of the way by the offending vehicle) A truck with a high bumper could do that without hitting the running board on the left side.

I have been a tow truck driver and dealt with lots of carnage, death and destruction. My guess is the car was at speed when it hit the pole as it looks like it was swerving right causing the rad to go in on the left. When it hit the pole, the rear axle lifted off and the car bounced back while still running in gear and the right fender hit the pole. I stand to be corrected. Ken Buhler
