    The car would have probably skidded and then rolled a couple of times then hit the nearest object at over a 100mph..
    In the process your head would have hit the side and roof of the car a few times and caused severe head injuries. Smashing your arms and legs is alos common in hi speed incidents so is spinal fractures.
    Depending of how lucky or not you are the car would probably catch fire as well. The damage to the car and the injuries would more than likely make it very difficult to get out and you would burnt in the car. If you are really lucky you would be unconsious aftre the initial impact and not have to suffer the agony of being burnt alive.

    You would more that likely be identified by your dental records. You would have also become a statistic used to fleece other motorists out of their hard earned cash in insurance premiums. People would alos refer to the occupants of the car as nobs when they passed the remains of it after being in a traffic jam for an hour or so while you were carried away in a black bag.

    have nice dreams

    Is there any chance one of the mods could move this to the new 'Billy Big Nuts' area?
