    amazing that noone was hurt. Makes one question the thinking that went into the design of the rail. I thought that those things were to prevent one from greater disaster on the other side of the rail. Instead the rail itself becomes the real culprit. I think that many places have moved toward a design that prevents impailing the motorist. I wonder what was going on in that driver's mind as all that metal was cascading across the passenger side.

    I think he was a college kid heading to school. Must have been an interesting conversation with Mom and Dad after they were sure he was uninjured.
