Tractor trailer v. SUV...draw?

The other morning we headed out on a motor vehicle accident. It came out as a rollover with entrapment, which around here gets and automatic medic unit dispatch. When we got there we saw one medium sized SUV facing the wrong direction up against a building. On the other side of the road we saw a tractor trailer that was destroyed.

The truck driver was uninjured, and thanks to his quick reaction, the driver of the vehicle wasn't dead. That is pretty much a miracle. We got the driver out and flew them to the trauma center. Among other things were broken femur, ribs, and decreasing mental status. There's not much to say that the pictures don't tell. I'm glad there wasn't a passenger, because they probably would have been cut in half.
