      The driver area looked relatively intact in that news video I linked, and they were able to easily remove the driver and there is no gore/blood.
      I suspect it was an elderly driver.

      Well, that's very sad for his friends an family.
      I ran across this still image at a NY post article.
      Yeah- that's a big rear end impact- enough to lift the front of the car off the ground.
      That could snap a person's neck, especially if they did not have their head against the head against the headrest (like leaning forward to adjust something).

      Our company’s camera system recorded a very shocking accident at the junction of the M25 and M3 motorways on Friday, September 11, 2020.

      From the recently completed M25 motorway, he drove up to the M3 motorway to pick up a trailer. The 67-year-old driver of the vehicle suddenly began to turn completely irregularly at the end of the branch that took off onto the M3 and drove up on the expressway in the opposite direction. Unfortunately, more vehicles were traveling at the junction, and one car had no chance, could not avert the collision, and crashed into a vehicle that turned irregularly on the highway with great force. From the force of the collision, the pick-up trailer broke off and crashed into the ditch, only luckily and in the presence of the drivers of the vehicles moving there, no more accidents happened. By the way, 4 children and 2 adults were traveling in the car that crashed into the pick up. At the junction in question, all the necessary foresight was in place: foresight and mandatory direction signs, the pavement signs themselves and the layout of the driveway were all clearly designed so that drivers did not have to question in which direction they should go. It is clear from the footage of the vehicle that caused the accident that he had been driving regularly on the driveway for a while, but he changed his mind when it joined the M3 motorway.

      We have already taken a number of preventive measures to prevent accidents on the motorway caused by motorists traveling against traffic. We have installed event detection cameras and sensors that give an immediate alarm in the event of a roll-over and help with orientation with a reinforced signaling system at all take-offs and exits.

      If you accidentally miss an exit on an expressway, never turn around or reverse! There are frequent multi-level junctions on Hungarian motorways, through which we can drive safely and turn around. If we find a resting place or a stop bay, stop and review the possible route, observe the road signs, direction signs.
      To plan the optimal route, we can also ask for help from Útinform at www.utinform.hu or by calling 06-1-336-2400.

      If you notice that you are driving in traffic, do not push back up the driveway, turn around, or cross the road under any circumstances. Switch on the hazard warning lights, if possible pull down to the edge of the stop lane or outside the traffic lane and stop. Put on your visibility vest, get out of the car, and wait behind the railing to call the 112 emergency number.

      If we drive in the right direction, but we get news that a vehicle is moving close to us in traffic, reduce speed, increase the following distance between our own and the car in front of us, classify it in the outer lane and don’t overtake. If possible, wait at the nearest gas station or rest area until the danger is gone. If we detect traffic ahead ourselves, use the nearest emergency number located along the way. If we call about this, they will immediately know exactly where the call is coming from and the authorities can take action more quickly. If there is no such phone nearby, call 112.

      Last December, in order to prevent and deal with the incidents seen in the video, our company launched a mini-campaign called “Keep the Direction”, as part of which we drew attention to the topic in the following Instagram posts:

      "Pull over, I got a leg cramp"

      BENTON COUNTY, Wash. — Three people are extremely lucky to be unhurt after their van crashed into a fence and ended up with a wood post and part of a chain link fence impaled into the front window.

      According to the Benton County Sheriff’s Office, it happened around 7:15 A.M. on Coats Road and Case Road near Prosser.

      BSCO says the car was going eastbound on Coats Road when one of the passengers reportedly experienced a leg cramp and needed the van to pull over.

      As the driver attempted to pull to the side of the road, deputies say they allegedly hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. That caused the van to crash into a guard rail and then into a wood fence before hitting a chain link fence.

      Officials say a wood post and part of the chain link fence's top rail impaled the front window during the crash, narrowly missing the driver and one of the passengers.

      "impaled"

      I see they got the extra cost "peel away" fender option.

      I'm sure someone is in big trouble over this.
