LSU's Chad Jones in accident this morning in New Orleans

For the football folks, looks like the dreads of doom was in an accident this morning in a range rover that is rumored he just bought last night. Happened on
Carrollton in front of Home Depot and Rouses. No idea where that is...but Louis will. It was a one car accident...someone had to be moving pretty good to do that in a one car wreck.

Here's the range:

WWL-TV in New Orleans is reporting that Jones suffered a fractured left leg, with arteries and nerves exposed. They report he is in critical condition and was in surgery as of 10:15am.

That's the point actually...Most modern cars are building that way to reduce the impact on the driver...There is such a thing as "too rigid"...If you make a vehicle too strong, all the energy is transfered directly into the occupants of the vehicle which means more injury & death...

That's the whole premise behind race cars, especially open wheel cars (F1, Indy, etc.)...They shatted/disintegrate upon impact in order to quickly dissipate the energy involved in the wreck & reduce the likliehood of significant injury to the driver...

Re: LSU's Chad Jones in accident this morning in New Orleans

I realize all of that. However, as was mentioned, how hard would you have to hit something to cause a Range Rover to disintegrate?

Re: LSU's Chad Jones in accident this morning in New Orleans

True enough...I'd have to imagine he was doing 60-70mph or more? That's definitely a residential street he is on...(or was on)...Though by the picture, you can really tell what he hit, and I think the picture is also a little misleading because that was taken after they cut him from the car...you can tell that because both A & B pillars are completely missing from the drivers side of the car...

Re: LSU's Chad Jones in accident this morning in New Orleans

Reports are now surfacing that there were 2 other guys in the truck with him...they are all fine.

And, he hit a concrete pole used for the train line there. probably not much give in the pole...truck definitely took the brunt of the impact.

Also, I'm not familiar with the street, Louis is I'm sure, but others are saying it's hard to get any speed up in that section due to the number of lights and such...but I can't comment for sure as I know new orleans about as well as I know china.

The wreck happened in the uptown area about miles from the dome.
