Charles Phares, 64, of Vanceburg, escaped with
minor injuries from this accident November 17.
Above left, the guardrail entered the passenger compartment of Phares' 1986 Buick,
narrowly missing him.
Above right, the guardrail entered the engine compartment, passing through the passenger
area of the vehicle, and exiting through the back glass.
At left, workers with Wills Wrecker Service attempt to remove the vehicle, which not only
had the guardrail threaded horizontally through the length of the vehicle, but a
well-anchored post was lodged vertically in the engine compartment.
