I think you are all missing the point lads, It hit a frigging tree!
I think they should be making cars out of trees by the look of it.
They take the impact better. I bet he came back and cut the bloody thing down, expensive tree!!!!
He probably had two broken legs but got out and walked, called for a taxi and took the plates of the car to allow more time to sober up.
If that was a company car and I was boss, his next would be a bus pass.
In any event, on a more serious note, the fool could have killed others.
