Photos of George Michael’s crashed Range Rover have now emerged. The photo above shows the near-side of the car i.e. the passenger side. The photo below shows the near side i.e. driver’s side.
Looking at the photos, two things are clear: first, that the reports in the press, including quotes by the driver of the lorry involved in the accident are inaccurate; second, the reason why George escaped without serious injury is that the passenger compartment was essentially undamaged in the accident.
From the photos, it’s obvious that this wasn’t a “rear end shunt”, as described in the press. Nor was the left side of the car destroyed, as reported by the press. Rather, the car and the truck were in collision from the side, causing damage to the front near side of the Range Rover. It appears the passenger compartment of the car was largely undamaged in the accident, with the driver’s side of the car being almost totally unaffected. It could have been caused by the truck moving on the road to hit the Range Rover, or the Range Rover moving on the road to hit the truck.
