Mystery Crash: Mustang Flies from Berm, Landing in Questionable Circumstances
The start of the new year for one person has been less than ideal. This is not just the case for the individual who owns this sixth-generation Ford Mustang, which can be spotted with its rear end protruding from a residence in Indianapolis, Indiana. It is safe to assume that there is an occupant residing in the house, and unfortunately, there is now a significant gap in the wall about three feet above ground level. Additionally, it is worth noting the irony that the street name happens to be Shelby Street.
On January 5th, around 1:00 pm in the afternoon, a collision took place as reported by the Indianapolis Fire Department. The driver was discovered by arriving firefighters still trapped inside the vehicle. Images reveal that the car had become tightly lodged in the side of the house, lifted up several feet from the ground.
As per a social media update from the fire department, the Mustang was the sole automobile implicated in the incident. The driver managed to vacate the vehicle independently and was taken to the hospital for assessment. No reports were made of anyone being present inside the structure, indicating that despite the wreckage of the car, no prominent injuries were sustained. The department states their ignorance regarding the cause of the collision and has entrusted the Indianapolis police to conduct an investigation.
The Indianapolis Metro Police Department did not have any further details to offer when contacted by Motor1. A request for information from the Indianapolis Fire Department directed us back to the police, leaving us with only what can be observed in the accompanying images.
Evidence of scuff marks on the embankment clearly indicates the path taken by the Mustang, which must have been moving at a high speed to crash through the wall. The fact that it is elevated suggests that the impact was strong enough to propel it into the air. From the rear view, we can discern that the sleek car is a GT model, and it appears to be resting on some sort of platform, presumably the floor of the nearby house. However, the most perplexing element is the extensive damage on the right rear quarter panel. It is apparent that this was not caused by colliding with the house, and the road sign nearby, as seen in a Google Maps screenshot, remains intact. Many questions remain unanswered in this baffling case.
In the event that additional details emerge regarding the occurrences leading up to this incident, we will promptly provide an update. However, since authorities in Indianapolis are currently remaining tight-lipped on the matter, we do not hold much hope. Fortunately, there were no severe casualties in the chaos, but it seems probable that the Mustang has sustained significant damage.
