First two don't tell much at all. 3rd one gives a bigger picture.
Scroll down for the story when you're done guessing.
Word is it's a mattress that got run over. Managed to get hung up
underneath. Under that mound of wire in the 3rd is the driveshaft. Who
knows what really happened. Interesting pics though.
Well it started out as being a blonde driver thing when i received the
story last week in email. I seriously doubt it was a blonde. (probably
a man) and that she drove it till it ran out of gas because the
mattress wire and springs had punctured the fuel tank. Either way, it's
obviously not a staged or manipulated photo. Some dumass driver
actually did this to their car. Should have their license pulled.
I have had 2 similar experiences. I picked up a plastic grocery bag on
US41 one day and it trashed the seal on the differential in minutes
A stopped to help a guy with a 200HP outboard in the river who had run
over a crab pot and it looked similar to the pictures above except it
twisted up into a cone behind the prop. He thought it would come off
by itself I guess and tried to keep going.
Fortunately I had tools and two of us worked about a half hour with 2
pairs of vice grips and wire cutters to get that mess off his prop.
Good news was he was able to go home under his own power. I told him
to watch for oil leaks ;-)

I would suspect that the photographer had no model release forms from the
