A car totaled from the inside out. Unique.

Read some of the comments and I FINALLY understand how this happened. Not sure how I didnt notice the other car in the photo before... a wreck definitely makes sense!!

I had no idea paint cans blew up. How does that happen?

I believe this is the very first picture on the internet - or does this happen a lot? Very old photo.

Oh my god, could you imagine the people in the other car? They fenderbend, get knocked forward, when the look up, they look to see who's hit them. Yellow. Yellow EVERYWHERE!

the airbags wouldn't deploy if it was minor. even if it was say, under 20 mph, think of it this way, the car stops suddenly, everything inside the car not attached is still traveling at 20 mph. Which is why seat belts were invented.

Definitely a wreck. As has been pointed out, the airbags are deployed, plus the hood is popped on the red car in front of it, plus the firefighter standing to the right. I'm a volly firefighter myself, and after seeing the aftermath of quite a few wrecks, this is very possible. In fact, that's exactly what I'd expect to see in such a situation.

It was obviously in an accident. The airbags are deployed. I'd believe this happening. The amount of energy of a head on like that is pretty huge.

This is actually not that uncommon. If a paint can gets too hot the pressure in the canister can make this happen. I don't know all the science-y bits to it. It happened to Richard Hammond once.

I'm going with staged. There's way too much splatter for a minor accident. There would be some spilling but not like that.

Can't figure out how you'd get that much paint on the interior without rolling it... ?
