An unusual accident has occurred in Pennsylvania, the US. An old Ford Model A and a modern BMW X3 SUV have collided on the road. The age difference between the cars is about 100 years.

It is not known how fast the cars were moving, but they were strangely damaged. The rare Ford has got off with a few dents and a broken headlight – it will not be difficult to repair the car, especially given that owners always try to keep collectible cars in good condition.

But the BMW X3 SUV suffered much more. The car flew into a ditch. There is severe damage visible in the front end and almost nothing left of the rear one at all. The car will probably not be restored – an insurance company will simply write it off for sale at auction.

The outcome of such an unusual accident seems rather ambiguous, given that modern cars are designed in such a way that not only offer the driver and passengers a strong body but also provide for deformation zones.

Thus, thanks to programmable deformation zones, energy from an impact is distributed more evenly across a car body. As a result, passengers will more easily survive a collision. Meanwhile, a car may look frankly bad after an accident and can no longer be restored.
