I was checking out the most recent updates at Snopes earlier, and caught the following article: http://www.snopes.com/photos/accident/guardrail.asp#photo
To summarise, a young man fell asleep at the wheel and crashed straight into a guardrail. The picture is shown above and there are a few other pictures at the link. The guy is lucky to be alive. Good thing this didn't happen in England where the driver's seat in on the other side of the car.
