Search not helping- RV/Motorhome crash

Hi everyone- I know that a few years ago there were some good pics of the aftermath of a motorhome/RV accident, with both exterior and interior pics of the projectiles, etc. I've been using the search feature and every combination of "Motorhome, RV, Camper, Accident, Crash, Wreck..." and can't find it. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

I know what you're talking about, and I, too have tried unsuccessfully to find them (though I'll look again).

In the meantime, here's an article from my local paper about a travel trailer that was hit by a semi. The trailer was obliterated, but it looks like there was no intrusion into the passenger compartment of the pickup pulling it. http://m.ocregister.com/news/chp-259852-semi-truck.html

Don't know if that helps at all.

Ok, I found some threads that had links to a CNN article and a photo account, but neither works anymore, probably because they're so old.

Thank you. I used to have the images saved but wiped them in a massive clean out. My sister was asking if there was a safe way to put car seats in motor homes. Thankfully she's pretty crunchy and has not only ERF'ed all 3 of hers, but she's helped educate others and even got her pediatrician to publish a general car-seat guide she had me write up for her to share with their patients. I have no doubt she will just use a tow-behind trailer instead, but still wanted to share the pics because they REALLY drove the point home.

If you do a Google Images search for "motorhome crash photos" (no quotes), you'll get a ton of images I wish I hadn't just seen.

Re: Search not helping- RV/Motorhome crash

Gah I am not finding it either. It sounds like even if it were found are expired? I was going to say let's try and remember the details.. I seemed to recall a drunk and or speeding pick up driver that was killed instantly and a TV that flew out between the front seats missing the occupants by a miracle
