Pontiac Firebird Car Crash: this car his a tree at 55mph
Pontiac Firebird Hitting a Tree backwards: Here's Nick's full story: "Short story. I was going North on a 4 lane divided highway. Cruising at about 70mph in the right lane and a car comes into my lane off of the on-ramp going about 55. I slow and downshift, then go to accelerate around him in the left lane. Not knowing there was a slight rain earlier as the roads looked dry. As soon as I hit the accelerator the car lost total control on a slick spot (temperature being in the high 20's). Car slung completely left, I brought it back right, and as I was finally getting it straight the right rear tire caught the slick grass and it was completely lost. Hit a tree going backwards at around 55mph. "
