Difficult to say for sure, but, she was probably going in excess of 120 km/h to result in such damage.

Same Same everyday. Seem like there is still no law and order on the roads. No one to catch the terrible drivers. May be its there is not enough cells or pounds to hold all the people and cars / bikes that should never be on the roads to start with. may be instead of billions on better roads the money can go to better driving tests, better traffic law enforcment and more cells to lock these idiots up in.
