It pains us to even post these photos of a Pontiac G8 meeting its unfortunate demise even more than it pains us to watch videos of crash tests. But while we can sleep at night knowing that the crash tested vehicles were totaled for the greater good of motoring and humanity, the passing of this G8 doesn’t serve a higher purpose.
According to those familiar with the story behind the car’s demise, the driver of the G8 was involved in a minor fender-bender, with a flat tire being part of the damage. The G8 didn’t have a spare, so a tow truck was called to the rescue.
As it was being towed to a body shop for repairs, something went wrong and (get this!) the G8 unlatched from the tow truck, causing it to fall down (at speed) and flip over a few times. In other words, a perfectly good and fixable G8 is now totaled for no good reason, and we see it here being trucked to automotive netherland.
