Gopher reportedly said "I'm alright" then did a little dance.

After causing her to crash, 1 gopher looked at at the next oncoming car, and he said to his friends: "shall we gopher two?"

How did that crash kill her? I see where she impacted the windshield so did she not have a seatbelt on or did the airbags not deploy?

That's pretty rare around here but happened recently when a road washed out from a short but heavy storm. Actually twice. The previous incident the pickup barely cleared and tore the front axle off. But the latest one a pickup was driving at a good clip since it's a rural road at night and smashed into the other side of the hole. Then another SUV came along and smashed on top of that one. I think the second vehicle is what killed them. A third barely stopped in time and reported the mess.

Sandy: I want you to kill every gopher on the course!
Carl Spackler: Check me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they're gonna lock me up and throw away the key...
Sandy: Gophers, ya great git! The gophers! The little brown furry rodents!
Carl Spackler: We can do that; we don't even have to have a reason.

No worries. She'll wake up tomorrow and get a chance to do it all over again.

To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit, ever. They're like the Viet Cong. Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

I have to laugh, because I've outsmarted even myself. My enemy, my foe, is an animal. In order to conquer the animal, I have to learn to think like an animal. And, whenever possible, to look like one. I've gotta get inside this guy's pelt and crawl around for a few days.

Did she try hitting the jump button repeatedly?

I was trying to figure that out too - doesn't seem like that bad of a hit. Even without a seatbelt, the air bag should have helped a lot. Maybe the impact was low enough on the frame that the sensor didn't trigger?

It's Montana. She was probably not wearing a seatbelt, and going 60-plus and came to an instant stop. I imagine there's a lot worse crash damage below the frame of the photo. The Delta V alone could kill you, airbag or not. That kind of g-force frequently blows a hole right in people's hearts.

The mark in the windshield looks really high up to me. It could be that the car nosed over into the hole, but the driver's momentum carried her in a straight line just over the airbag. I may be mistaken, but I don't think airbags due much for you if you're not wearing a seat belt anyhow. The seat belt would have saved her life.

"The crash was not made public until days after it occurred, and the sinkhole had been repaired"

So the government admits its cover-up right up front. Just what the hell is really going on out there in the middle of nowhere?

Not sure. But that doesn't look quite like some of the no seat belt impacts I have seen. And this was definitely a high G stop. Perhaps this is no seat belt with airbag deployment?

This makes sense to me. Also, can anyone tell the age of the car? This could be a car from the 90s which would not have airbags. Either way this reminds me how important it is to wear your seatbelt.

Because that would be totally unexpected and funny.

That a woman driver was killed by something else is a reversal of usual roles.

It's a Chevy Cobalt which would make it a 2005-2010 model year and has airbags. The later ones even have side curtains.

I want to make a joke about the side curtains matching the air bags, but that would be making light
of a human tragedy.
