New G Wagon looks totaled after wreck

My son saw a new G wagon in Destin, Florida that sustained mayor damage after being hit by an SUV. According to my son the front end was pushed back onto the windshield. Donít have any details about possible injuries.

thats too bad. Hopefully no one was injured. I would think the newer body has crumple zones to meet todayís standard to absorb impact and crumple up versus the older design of a tank. Older model solid front axle versus new model car like front independent suspension. Donít think you can have both. Either truck like tough or car like easy to drive.

Sorry I donít have any photos. My son has been a G wagon owner and he couldnít believe how bad the new G had fared in this accident. I just wonder if the large solid axle of the old G wagon would give more protection. My guess is that few photos will probably start circulating.The accident happened in Destin (Miramar Beach) Florida
