In Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia, a car driver rear ended a flat bed truck, and got impaled through the face with multiple rebars the truck was transporting. Apparently, the driver was tail-gating the truck closely and the predictable happened.
Unfortunately, I did not get any further information, and don’t know whether he survived or not. At first sight, it looks like the metal pierced non vital parts of his skull, but upon closer look one notices severe blood loss marked by the large stain on his shirt, and the fact that one rebar went through the neck exactly where you’d expect carotid artery to be. If the artery was severed, he bled out and died within a manner of a minute or two.
It would appear that this happened in Punjab, India, and not Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia as was originally reported. I apologize for this mishap.
