Default Stepside crash: "Woman suffers critical injuries after Mimico crash"

Unfortunate - serious crash this morning in Toronto. Looks like a Ranger stepside - head-on into a light pole.

Nah, I'm sure they were doing the speed limit and not in any way distracted.

WOW! Only reason she's still alive is the fact that she didn't have her seatbelt on or she'd of been DEAD AS A DOOR NAIL on the scene!

Appears to me that the engine was shifted to the left. Wasn't a straight-on impact. Just enough of an angle for the pole to traverse from the right headlight to center cab, shoving the drivetrain to the left, but might have caught the pedals. Just my opinion - she was very lucky.
